Little Gnomes

Today I want to share with you another one of the handmade Christmas gifts that I gave this year. 
Mia's handmade present were these cute little gnomes.

 I had originally seen them on Pinterest and immediately thought of my dreamer of a girl. You can go to the original link here. Her gnomes are bigger and meant for smaller hands, but the only body shapes I could find at our local craft stores were small. It meant tweaking the patterns, but that wasn't too hard to figure out after a little bit of work. 

They aren't perfect, but she was super excited to get something made by Mommy. She had seen me working on the twin's gifts and assumed I wasn't doing anything for her. 
She's assigned different elements to each one, which is fitting because of their different hats and capes.

These two are probably my favorites. They were the last two I finished so I had gotten a lot better at the stitching. 
I'll be back soon with more handmade projects!
