Here’s how to create Stuffed Valentine’s Day Gnomes:
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.
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.
Cut out Gnome with pinking shears, but on the outside edge of the sewn lines.
Stuff the hat section with Poly-Fil, but remember to use a pencil or chopstick to get the stuffing into the tippy top.
Insert mini zip bag into Gnome, fill with Poly-Pellets, zip closed, roll closure and then place inside.
Stuff bottom right and left corners of the Valentine’s Day Gnome Stuffies with Poly-Fil.
Apply Fabri-Tac fabric glue to opening and then secure with a binder clip until dry.
Trace and then cut a heart-shaped beard from Poly-Fil Project Fleece.
Attach the beard to the Gnome and a pom pom nose to the top center of the beard with Fabri-Tac fabric glue.
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.
