Find 10 adorable Gnome sewing patterns to make with free tutorials below, and let them warm your heart this holiday. Then use your scraps to make some matching folded-fabric Scandinavian Star Ornaments!




My free Christmas Gnome Sewing Pattern is a reader favorite! It includes step by step instructions and a free PDF template download. I used quilting cotton for the gnome body and flannel for his hat, but you can mix up the fabrics however you like. Then I used hot glue to attach his faux fur beard. Don’t miss this fabulous sewing project.

The next gnome pattern you wanted me to make was this super simple Easy Gnome Pattern. This NEW for 2022 gnome doesn’t have arms or legs, but he does have the cutest long and slouchy hat ever!

Find a favorite fabric with Gnomes and your ready for a One Yard Tote…. with Gnomes. The pattern makes two sizes of tote and is perfect for beginners.

Gnomes aren’t just for sitting on shelves. My Gnome Table Runner is perfect for brightening your table in December and beyond. You don’t have to, but I tried knit fabrics for my gnome hats and it worked out great! Don’t you just love those little black boots? I also put a bit of polyester stuffing in the legs.



A cute Gnome also adornes my free Gnome Quilt Block to make the most on-trend quilt block of the season. How many gnomes can you make by Christmas?



Sew adorable Gnome Ornaments with this free sewing pattern that’s perfect for Christmas time or anytime. I will show you how to turn the adorable faux fur beard into plush pony tails so you can make girl gnomes too!

The darling Tomte Christmas Gnome Pillow over at Polkadot Chair would be a fabulous addition to a Gnome adorned living room. I especially love the embroidered touch on his hat, but if you don’t embroider, he would still be so cute!

Did you know that fleece is a great fabric to use for applique? You could add a furry touch to this pillow without faux fur.

These gnomes have lots of character with beards so long you can’t see the bottom of the body! The video tutorial for these cute DIY Norwegian Holiday Gnomes makes this free crafting project super easy. Tip: You can put rice in the gnome body to help it stand up and a pipe cleaner in the hat.


Last for this roundup is this gnome that is perfect for gift giving! The tall thin shape of this gnome stands out from his crowd of chubbier gnome friends. Why? He’s a bottle cover and gift bag. He’s also the perfect holiday decoration for a space you have been wanting to adorn! Get the free sewing pattern for my Gnome Bottle Cover and Gift Bag.
