Here’s what you need to make Gnome Stuffies for Valentine’s Day:

Here’s how to create Stuffed Valentine’s Day Gnomes:

STEP ONE

To begin the Valentine’s Day Gnome Stuffies, gather all supplies. For small Gnome, measure and cut a 4.5” by 9” rectangle (hat) and a 2.5” by 9” rectangle (body) from Kunin Felt, sew together using the presser foot as the seam allowance, and then fold in half horizontally.  For large Gnome, measure and cut a 6″ by 12″ rectangle (hat) and a 3″ by 12″ rectangle (body) from Kunin Felt, sew together using the presser foot as the seam allowance and then fold in half horizontally.

STEP TWO

Download, print and cut out  VALENTINES DAY GNOME STUFFIES PATTERNS  Trace triangle body shape onto felt, and then sew, leaving a 2” opening at the bottom for stuffing.

STEP THREE

Stuff the hat section with Poly-Fil, but remember to use a pencil or chopstick to get the stuffing into the tippy top.

STEP FIVE

To finish the Valentine’s Day Gnome Stuffies, cut a tag from white cardstock, punch a hole at the end. Write a message on the tag and then cut a fishtail with scissors.  Fold a 24” length of baker’s twine in half and then tie in a bow around the top of the Gnome’s hat to finish.
