Shroom gnome home


Ok here is the new item I mentioned earlier. It's a mushroom gnome home or that's what I named it. I took a pattern from one of my new japanese craft books and tweeked it a little to my style. I think it turned out cute! I've got plans for different color schemes as well. If I had enough hands to keep up with my ideas I'd be doing alot better. I made this one into a pin, but could easily make it into a hanging ornament or keychain. Might try a bigger version for a pincushion, just have to figure out how to make it stand up.

Well I haven't been very creative today. Had to finish tying up the branches cut and put out for trash and the Olympics has held my attention all evening. I'm a night owl though so I'll be getting started on something new soon.

That's about it for today. Gnight!

So cute! What if you made a super big one? Like a giant mushroom stuffed animal? (hehe, just a thought. Its so cute it makes me want to hug it!)

It's so funny you suggested that. I've been tossing the idea around of making larger ones. I've been thinking about enlarging all my critters. Thanks!
