Autumn Garden Gnomes

This week at craft we will be making these gorgeous autumn garden gnomes.

 We made these 7 for Angie and her class 1 birthday celebration.

Last year we did a workshop at school and made these rainbow fairy folk to live in the fairy toadstool house.
  We used our hand painted rainbow felt made in an earlier workshop.
We had such creative responses from our clothing patterns.
I love the details sewn on

and their individuality.

We also made the rainbow baby dragon from Robyns' pattern
using our hand painted rainbow felt.
We added some embellishments
and softened his spine
adding beads to their heads and metalic thread to their wings.
