Gnome money down; what a great deal
This is a great deal too… a Free Pattern Friday!!!
Happy weekend everyone!
We couldn’t just make all boy gnomes, there has to be a girl or two in the series, right?
This girl gnome sort of reminds me of a cartoon Christmas elf or something. I imagine it would be really cute on Christmas print rather than plain muslin.
I have been doing a lot of Redwork lately and chose to do all of the gnomes in the series of modern Redwork, just because I like the look. Don’t let the color I chose sway you into limiting your creativity, go bold, choose new colors.
As always, I’d love for you to tag me on Instagram (@jansweeps) or leave me a comment below with your version of this pattern.
