Using this cute pattern from Ellie & Mac we will create a custom gnome with a variety of upcycled fabrics. The More, The Merrier! - Book with a friend for any Festive Workshop & both get 10% off. Select 2 participants when booking & use the code festivefriends Our aim for this project is to use as much upcycled materials as possible - not only to reduce costs but to make our gnomes as special as possible! You could use old christmas sweaters, party clothes, tableware or bedding. Your gnome does not need to be Christmas themed or upcycled - you're welcome to use whichever fabric combination you choose. The pattern is designed for woven fabrics - cotton, canvas, denim or linen are all suitable choices. For our sample we have used denim jeans, tweed scraps & leftover christmas fat quarters. Gnomes are stuffed with a combination of recycled plastic pellets (for weight) & sliced fabric scraps. There are multiple options for the gnome: - Beard (short or long) or braids - Small feet or long legs - Overalls, Apron or plain body In the workshop we will: - Select our Gnome style - Cut our pattern pieces - Follow the pattern to construct our gnome There will be a mixture of machine & hand sewing for the workshop.
