Gnome Sweet Gnome :)

In my opinion, there are really only 2 kinds of gnomes. There are the evil ones that are scary looking and you just know that they eat slugs and frighten baby birds as soon as it gets dark outside and I'm sure they have something to do with all the things that go missing from the garden....
Then there are the totally sweet gnomes that work hard all day in your flower beds with their tiny wheelbarrows and help the flowers grow, singing a happy tune the entire time. Those are the kind I'm in love with :) I have always loved their little pointy hats and their sweet disposition! I decided to try my hand at making a pattern for one of these adorable little guys and this is Karl :) I've added Karl to my shop today to see if anyone else has room in their heart and home for him and if so, I'll make some more :) Happy Valentines Day everyone!

* Update on Karl - he didn't even last 4 hours on Etsy. Guess it's time to stitch some more :)

  2. Karl is...was so cute! I'm glad he found a new home. Now you'll have to make a lot more!

  3. Nice :-)! Karen you are so creative. I totally love the way your mind works. Karl is so cool and I am glad he found a good home.
