Here it is! Woo-hoo, I'm so excited to share!

This is my first crafty tutorial. Please feel free to comment on any improvements that I can make. If you think the instructions are confusing, or if you think that adjustments need to be made, or additional pictures need to be added.

Thank you so much. Looks just great and I can't wait to get started.
I'm hoping my local craft store has wool felt, not just the acrylic stuff. Will check this afternoon. THANKS!! You are the best

Do you mean the #1009 Tot?
I just don't see a boy, 1006.
Thanks.

Hmmm...no, it was definitely "Little Boy Peg 1-11/16", product number 1006. The Little Tot peg, 1009, is really tiny (I have those too), it's only 1-3/16". But, 1006 isn't on the website now. I wonder if they are out of stock or something. It's definitely 1006 though because I have my packing slip right here.

Okay, just called Casey's. They are out of stock until March which is why she took them off the website. (Very friendly, btw!) She said you can call and she'll put them in her back-order drawer if you want. They are definitely continuing to carry them though.

Wow, thanks so much for calling. You've gone above and beyond!!
I will give a call tomorrow.

NP. I didn't want to have it up on my blog and no one be able to find what I was talking about! I'm glad you noticed so I could correct it.

She was so nice and friendly on the phone. Made me feel even better about buying their product! Of course, they are a local business too, and I try to buy stuff locally.

Hey that's a great tutorial. Thanks for doing that!

Thanks Tina!

FYI~
I found big and small peg people at my local Hobby Lobby. The "big" ones
were 2.99 for a package of 8.

I didn't buy little ones since I'd already had some that I'd found at Michael's, which were .99 for 3. Michael's did not have any of the bigger size.

Tina~ just wanted to say thanks again for the fantastic tutorial! Here are some pics of the gnomes I made. I bought extra goodies to supply their house which I made out of a satsuma box with a moss roof, cork chimney and smoke made from wool from our goats. It was a fun project!

Gnomes

Younger gnomes and their home

(I think the squirrel has his eye on their strawberry!)

Okay, that squirrel totally looks like he is staring at their strawberry. So funny!

I love the beads that you used as clasps for their cloaks. That's really cute. I really need to make a gnome home next. Although, they seem to be fine living in the tree house with the bendy dolls for now.

Thanks so much for sharing!!!

I have been lurking here for a bit. I am SO not crafty, but DS loves these little gnomes and loses them constantly and wants more... so I needed to figure it out so I could keep him in gnomes without going broke!

First, your tutorial ROCKS. If someone like me can do it, anyone can!

So here's the deal... DS wanted an (are you ready for this?) "astronaut gnome" and some "pirate gnomes"

So here they are. A big pirate captain with a little swabbie

And my lame attempt at an astronaut gnome... (complete with cheesey backdrop)
http://im1.shutterfly.com/procserv/4...t2zZwzYtge3nwI

voila!

Wow, Boatbaby, those are so cute!!! I think both the pirate and the astronaut turned out great. I'm so glad that you found the tutorial useful.

I'd love to post pictures of your creations on my blog (or you could link to the pics in the Comments area). I think they would give people great inspiration for what more you can do with the tutorial than just traditional gnomes. Think outside the box, and all that.

Those are awesome! And the astronaut looks great, cheesy backdrop and all.


Those pirates would look great on my pirate playmat.

Hmm, I still have some wooden people I could make pirate clothes for. Thanks for the idea!
