Brown Vest
1. Fold felt into quarters. Fold shirt in half, lay on top of felt with folded edge of shirt and felt together.

3. Unfold – cut down front fold and cut front neck line into a v – shape.
4. Sew seams together or glue.

Gnome Hat
1. Measure childs head and add at least 1/2” for seam. (This amount will determine how much red felt is needed for project.)
2. Take ruler and angle from bottom edge to make a cone shape.
3. Sew seam and turn right side out.

Gnome Beard
1. Measure child’s face from one ear - under the chin - to the other ear.
2. Trim your piece of fun fur to fit the measurements of child’s face.
3. Trim bottom edge of fun fur to look like a beard.
4. Sew elastic on each side so it fits across top of child’s head.
5. Trim to your liking.

Gnome Boots
5. Cover old boots using black duct tape. Use 5-8” pieces for best
results. Covering older boots in duct tape will create a rugged boot look
