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.
