This grumpy little cutie is Warrick, a garden gnome who I recently discovered living in a gnomehole in my backyard. However I think the recent heatwave must have gotten to him as I have found him indoors more and more often, much to the annoyance of Henry, my ginger cat. I think he likes tormenting poor Henry, I also believe he loves being tossed and thrown about. Despite his indignant cries and constant complaining I'm sure I've heard him giggling as he was flying through the air, he also seems to give up easily enough when being chased if he thinks he'll be thrown about once caught.



This is not your typical father christmas looking garden gnome seen as statues in the gardens of muggles, this is a gnome found only in the gardens of witch's or wizard's as described in the Harry Potter series. Beautifully designed I could not resist this little creature and fun he brings, created to hold a bean bag pouch, this garden gnome was made to be tossed and thrown about and at 10 inches tall he is the perfect size for just that.



The tutorial for this unique pattern goes into great detail from the materials and tools needed to the techniques and tip used in construction and the pattern comes together beautifully. Just as the Weasley's de-gnomed the garden at The Burrow here is an opportunity to de-gnome my own garden, or at least play at de-gnoming with the Gnome Toss Game that is included with this pattern. The creator of this unique magical creature is mieljolie and I purchased this pattern from her etsy store.

I love this little gnome and his adorable toes too. And he is hand-sewn? That's amazing! Great job.

Thanks so much pottermouth  Smiley Its the first time I have sewed feet in this style and I absolutely love how his little toes turned out. Also yes he is completely hand-sewn, it's the only way I sew, he took a little while to finish but he was definitely worth the effort.

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time given to us.
