Learn how to make your own lovely Scandinavian Christmas Gnomes. Everything you need apart from scissors and fabric adhesive will be in the box. You need basic sewing and embroidery skills - split stitch, blanket stitch and back stitch. We use British wool felts and fleeces. Man made materials are used in the stuffing and some of the trims. Kit contains all materials, pre felted and beaded components, and instructions. We can change colours of felt to your requirements. Mr Nisse features a beaded snowflake and needle felted mistletoe embellishment. Mrs Nisse has a heart and bead embellishment to the hat and Corriedale or Alpaca wool plaits. Rudolf Nisse His antlers and hand felted ears are a real show stealer and the beaded holly completes the design. The gnomes are about 15 - 17cm tall when finished. All of the gnomes are shaped so that they stand well without being weighted and the hats are wired so that you can arrange to suit your taste. These are not toys, so please keep them away from young children and pets as they have small components and wire within the body, hat or antlers. Please keep them away from candles and sources of heat. The kit is packed in a strong white box wrapped in acid free tissue and trimmed with a Scandinavian style ribbon and label. These felt sewing kits make lovely presents and are a wonderful addition to your Christmas decor or even as a table centre piece.
