Felt+Fleece+Cotton=Gnomes!

These little treasures are destined for a trip to my stall on Friday. They are so fun to make - I've made them from pure wool felt hand dyed by a lovely gal named Heidi who lives in the Adelaide Hills. I've stuffed the gnomes with wool fleece and blanket stitched them together with cotton thread. I think I can almost hear them giggling amongst themselves....


I've also been busy been busy sewing up some Steiner baby toys. These little cuties are made from cotton fabric, wool fleece and cotton thread too. Perfect for little ones to snuggle for sleepy time or for toddlers whose pesky troublesome teeth are bugging them. Some of them even have little bells in their hats!I'm taking my 2.5yr old daughter along for the ride on Friday. I'm hoping she'll be entranced by all the things going on and be the perfect model for my Silly Gilly hats! Check list for Friday - Silly Gilly stock, snacks for daughter, more snacks, sticker books, more snacks....

I can vouch for them :) Ethan loves his steiner doll. And I love it more because it can just go in the washing machine!!

and those felt dolls are brilliant. Ella uses them all in her dolls house.

So they have stood the test of time in my house :)

those little gnomes are just gorgeous. I love all the colours you have chosen and the dolls are really cute too.

Good luck.
