I was asked to make some toys for our school's Easter raffle and I tried to think of something egg-shaped to fit in with the theme. Then I realised that gnomes, with big hats and short, dumpy bodies, are just perfect!



 I came up with a boy gnome with a little beard, and a girl gnome with cute pigtails. They're only 3.5" tall and look really cute sitting around the house, or the garden. My 10 year-old son even worked out that they're the perfect shape, if you spin them just right, to do a bit of break-dancing!

Thank you, I'm so pleased you like them! I was really happy with the way they turned out, and they were sweet to have sitting around the house.

Thanks for the lovely comments! They would look cute in an indoor garden, I agree. No, their hats don't come off, they're crocheted all together.
