How to make a Halloween Gnome
- Felt fabric
- Matching threads
- Pencil or fabric marker
- Scrap felt or cotton batting
Print out the Halloween Witch Gnome template and cut out all of the pattern pieces.
Select Halloween themed colored felt fabrics for the Halloween gnome plush. We’re using green, orange, black, grey, brown and purple colored felt fabrics. We have selected grey felt for the beard, light brown for the nose and other colors for the rest of the patterns.
Trace and cut out the patterns from the chosen felt fabrics.
Arrange the small bat cutout on the middle part of the hat and arrange a strip along the bottom side of the hat.
Place another strip near the bottom part of the shirt cutout to make a belt.
Also, place the nose cutout near the top of the beard cutout.
Stitch the bat and the strip to the hat cutout using matching threads.
Stitch the belt to the shirt cutout.
Stitch the nose to the beard using only 2 stitches on the top of the nose.
Place the shoe cutouts on the bottom side of the base cutout; keeping most of the shoe cutouts sticking below the gnome’s body.
Lay the gnome’s shirt on top of the base, overlapping the shoes.
Keeping the top edge open for now, stitch around the 2 sides and bottom of the gnome’s shirt.
Place the beard on top of the gnome as shown below.
Place the hat on the base, slightly covering the top side of the shirt, beard, and nose.
Stitch around the sides of the hat to connect it with the base piece. Be sure to keep the bottom edge of the hat open for stuffing.
Stuff the gnome with scrap felt or cotton batting through the opening between the shirt and hat.
Stitch the bottom edge of the hat, being sure to also catch the beard and shirt to close the gnome.
Once you’re done stitching, tie a knot or two, insert the remaining thread into the plush and cut off extra thread if required.
