I did a little updating on my gnome friends. Here's what they used to look like.
I'm now using boiled wool suiting for the leaves and stitching with my machine. I'm using a straight stitch, but on a stretch stitch setting. It makes 3 stitches instead of one and makes it stand out more.
Instead of making the hat from felt, I'm making it from leftover sweater bits.
I love the ribbing and how it tips at the top.
Oh look, they have a new home. I actually bought the toadstool last year at the farmer's market here. It lived in Toronto with us a for a while, now it's back home.
The gnomes can sleep in the bags, use it as a rug and it can be worn around the neck.
Good night little gnomes!
Have a good one,
