Woven Gnomes and their house

I am doing a major happy dance.  For the last year, I have been working on a whole lot of things, and it’s been frustrating to not get them out into the world.

Well… I am finishing them up and getting them up on my website.  Happy happy dancing!!!!

So, taddah! Here are the latest of my new designs to be launched: Mr and Mrs Gnome and their Gnome House to weave on the potholder loom.

There are so many neat things about the Gnomes and their Gnome home:

The roof of the house opens, so you can store treasures inside it, or reach inside to place little pieces of furniture for the Gnomes.

The house is woven with cotton loops on the potholder loom.

There are windows for Mr & Mrs Gnome to peek out of. The door opens & closes.

Instructions for how to weave the door & windows & chimney are included.

The Gnome house is trimmed with spool knitted cord.

The Gnomes are woven with yarn on the potholder loom. Because they are flat, you can stitch a pin to them to wear on your lapel, hat or bag. Or, they can live in your favorite book to mark your place. They also love to slip into envelopes and fly off to visit friends! They also enjoy hanging out on the branches of Christmas trees.

There are a lot of unique and innovative new techniques in this pattern- it’s really fun!

This is a truly magical project to inspire your imagination and ignite your creativity!

I was so excited about the Gnomes that I made a little video about them:

Happy Gnomies and happy weaving! 😀
