I ran out of yarn to finish knitting these as teachers gifts as I’d planned but I didn’t want to waste time running to the yarn store as today was make some headway on teachers gifts day so I had to come up with a plan B.
I made little Mr & Mrs Claus here by shrinking down the Mr & Mrs Gnome pattern. I printed the PDF six pages on one page and it came out to be a good ornament size, 5″ tall. I cut out all the pieces and then glued them down, overlapping pieces as in the pattern, onto a piece of black felt. I tucked the rickrack loop in between the hat and backing and then glued a pom at the top. I used black E beads for the eyes. To make them glittery I painted parts – the hair, the beard, the belt buckle, the heart – with glitter glue. They turned out so cute I think! Now I want to make lots of my patterns over in teeny tiny ornament size.
