Gnomes for your home! Stitch a year-round collection of 12 friendly gnomes for your home using this fabulous new book by sewing superstar Debbie Shore.

Gnomes aren't just for winter! Sewing superstar Debbie Shore presents a friendly, fashion-forward, all new collection of 12 gnomes for your home, based on her hugely popular Erik and Ola creations from Half Yard™ Winter.


Beginning with all the materials and tools you'll need, as well as guidance on making up the 2 body sizes (small and large) and key features such as feet, braids and beards, Debbie then shows you how to make 12 magical gnomes. From Moss the Woodland Gnome and Noel the Christmas Gnome, to Eek the Witch Gnome and Hearty the Pirate Gnome, there is a whole host of characterful friends to stitch! 

Fun accessories feature in the outfits throughout, including wings, a toadstool hat, flowers, bees and more – why not mix-and-match outfits and accessories, so you can make a gnome that's gn-unique to you!

Full-size templates for key accessories and shapes are included at the back of the book.
LIBRARY JOURNAL, Oct 2023

British television presenter/actor/sewist and award-winning author Shore (“Half Yard” series) has brought her sewing skills to gnome patterns. This well-designed book contains 12 adorable patterns that range in theme from the seasonal (Easter, spring, summer, snow, and Christmas) and magical (witches, fairies) to the natural (forests, mushrooms) and perhaps unexpected (a pirate). Each gnome has between four and six pages of clear instructions, including templates that enable sewists to create their projects in two body sizes: large and small. The book opens with a thorough section on cutting, assembling, and sewing the individual parts. Knowledge of simple embroidery and sewing (hand and machine) techniques is required, so this book is not for absolute beginners. The supply list is composed of items readily available online or at U.S. craft stores. Instructions for gnomes and their various embellishments are both pictorial and written with numbers to match pictures to paragraphs.
VERDICT An essential purchase where gnomes and sewing titles are popular.
