Even gnomes love to dress up for Halloween. This year Radolf wanted to be a spooky mummy! Make your own gnome mummy to go trick or treating.
 

(Note: Sorry if the images are a little hard to make out. It isn't easy capturing white on white work on camera!)

Materials:

            Scraps of white felt

            Approximately 44” x 1/4” white cotton fabric or felt

            1 “little boy” people turning* - 1 11/16” x 5/8”

            White embroidery floss

            Craft glue

            Copy of pattern

 

Directions:

  1. Print off a copy of the pattern.

 

  1. Paint face and shoulders white. Add facial features using a felt tip pen or paint.

 

  1. Cut out hat and body wrap from white felt. Glue body wrap to gnome’s body making sure the bottom the wrap is even with the bottom of the body. Let dry.

 

  1. Using 2 strands of white embroidery floss, blanket stitch the hat’s back seam. Make sure to overlap 1/8”. (We have more pictures of blanket stitches in our Fall Banner Pattern).

 

  1. Glue hat to gnome straight up and down or slightly towards the back.

 

  1. Cut out the 44” x 1/4” white cotton fabric or felt.

 

  1. Beginning at the top of the hat, glue fabric strip to gnome in a circular manner. Overlap slightly. Occasionally cut strip and start again leaving a tail to give a tattered look. Cut strips to give a crisscross look around the face. Make sure to use plenty of glue especially each time you cut the fabric and restart wrapping.
