READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO PREVENT MISUSE OF MATERIALS.

IMPORTANT: Do not cut out the hat until you have added the hair. Then, cut the hat out of paper first and "try it on" for size. You may have to make the hat slightly larger if you have lots of hair :)

The tutorial on How to Cut Out Felt can be found HERE.

DIRECTIONS:

Do all the steps in Part 1.

Check the pattern piece for the area of the shawl that will be gathered. Begin just to the side of the gathering line. Using one strand of floss and a running stitch, sew around the shawl and continue sewing over the gathered section. DO NOT tie off the end.

Britta's Make-Over

Britta and I were chatting the other day, and she said she was ready for a make-over. We had tons of fun deciding on a new style, and then we both got busy stitching away. I think she looks lovely! Next week she'll model for many more photos and I'll include a tutorial. Just thought you might enjoy a little sneak peek!

If you are lucky enough to have Flower Fairies in your garden, then you already know that all of your plants seem to grow a little lovelier and their blooms seem to last a little longer&hellip; as if by magic!<br />

Now, you can bring that magic indoors by crafting your own Flower Fairies. Long known to be great friends with the gnomes and woodland creatures, your Flower Fairies will easily join in the merry making with the rest of your wee folk.<br />

New Gnomes in the Thicket

Although your average woodland gnome has a life expectancy of hundreds of years, that's not always the case for friends that dwell in our gnome house. Although many of them live to a ripe old age, sadly, some have been carried off by beasties, sometimes known as puppies, others have mysteriously disappeared, only to be found later by mommies when going through the pockets of wee ones that have come to visit, and, occasionally, they go off on their own journeys, perhaps to other rooms in the house, and sometimes they are even discovered in the mailbox in our fairy forest! When these wandering gnomes do return, they are always ready to share tales of their adventures! But the sad truth is... occasionally we do lose a gnome of two or three. ((heavy sign))

From time to time we invite more gnomes to join us in The Thicket. Here are a couple of new gnome friends that now reside with us. It looks like they are dressed in their finest... perhaps for a spring wedding!

To make your own Wedding Guest Gnomes, follow the general directions for making gnomes which can be found HERE.
