2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Get yer gnome on! on: March 05, 2011 08:05:53 PM
I will admit it right up front; I collect cabbage patch dolls   Grin  Not the plastic one that were really big in the 80's mind you, but the soft sculpture ones that Xavier Roberts started making in the late 70's on up to today! I belong to a few collector's groups, and a good friend of mine in WI who also collects, *really* wanted a gnome outfit for her "preemie" sized cabbie named Oliver! One bonus about the preemies is that they are the same size as those Mass Market kids of the 80's, so I was able to use some of the MM patterns I had kicking around to at least give me a base to start with -- the only thing i ended up using was a pattern for pants, and the rest I ended up kinda winging, LOL! This is what I ended up with:

She was thrilled with it, as was Oliver I am told, LOL!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Holy. Flippin. WOW!    Shocked   Every time I watch Chamber, and the scene comes on where she is yelling at the boys for breaking Harry out - I look at that sweater and wonder if I could make one -- You did a FANTASTIC job!!! I would absolutely love a tute for this if you would be willing to share!  FanTAStic job!!!!

Thanks *soo* much everyone for the wonderful comments! She absolutely loved it, I don't know if she will be able to put it away when the holiday season is over, LOL! I unfortunately didn't get any pics of her opening it - my little one woke up Christmas morning with a fever, so I spent most of it taking care of a sickie kidlet  Undecided

Thank you SO much everyone! I am so flattered by all the compliments!   Cheesy  Only a few more days to wait till she opens it, I am so excited, LOL!

Your project is awesome!  I would never have been able to tell you are a new crocheter.  Your MIL should love it!  and appreciate the love you put into her gift. 

Can you tell me how tall (approximately) the figures are?  I have been looking for a nativity set that I can let my grandsons play with.  This will be perfect.  Now I just have to get busy. 

Thanks again.  Merry Christmas.

The people are about 3.5 - 4" tall, the animals and Jesus are much smaller -- my only warning with giving them to kids would be they are assembled in *many* pieces - head, body, arm, sleeve, beard, robe neck and bottom trim pieces are all separate, so i definitely would give the parts a good tug to make sure they aren't going to come loose after being played with & maybe skip the hay under the baby as it's just very loosely tacked   Smiley

oh is he **ever** sweet!  Love him! With the button eyes, he would make a perfect companion for those cute Lalaloopsy dolls that are big this Christmas! Great work!

Thank you so much for the kind words! I can't wait to get started on my daughter's after the holidays, hers is much more detailed, and I am hoping how to do some lacework embellishments to make hers look a little more vintage   Smiley

Wow - these are beautiful! My first thought was "how long did these take!" and I can't imagine staying focused on something for 6 months. Well done!

It's definitely a challenge to stay with it for that long - I have a Mirabilia piece that I have been working on for a few years now cuz I get bored with it and have to take a break and go back to it later, LOL!
