Looking for something to cheer someone up, or just need more gnomes in your life? You are not alone! We love the little guys. Sometimes known as tomte, a Scandinavian Christmas gone, there are so many ways they can be made. This is why we have created a list of the best gnome sewing patterns. Each one is unique, so to make something a little different, our list is a great resource. There is everything from a table runner to gnomes for all seasons.
Another classic festive gnome and this one is made easy by the big images and simple instructions.
From the adding of the fluff to bulk out the gnome to the rice for filling the legs, there are plenty of clever steps that make this such a fun project.
There are parts where the whole family can join in and although the hat pattern won’t fit on one piece of paper, there is advice on how to make it work. We like that this gnome is a decent size, as it will look great over the Christmas period.

This adorable little chap is similar to the ones you see in store, but far more personal, especially when given as a gift. That is if you can bear to part with him when he is finished.
For a gnome sewing pattern, it is easy to make, yet really looks fantastic with those long legs, ready to dangle over the shelf.
With that little soft beard and your choice of festive colors, there are so many ways this can be made to suit a color scheme. There are instructions to help guide the user through every step and it is possible to make more than one in an evening.

Not many of these delightful gnomes have eyes, so this makes for a refreshing change.
The fluffy beard is still very much there for him to hide behind, but it has a slightly friendlier look that is almost a cross between a gnome, and Santa.
The eyes don’t slow the process down as they are just as easy to make. They take around 20 minutes to make, and that is on the first attempt. With a video tutorial as your guide, it is a great festive craft project.

Using socks as the main material, this is an excellent gnome sewing pattern project that can be made with the family.
Those Christmas crafts never seem to get boring, and this is a favorite for many. It is easy to see why since the tutorial is free and easy to follow. With some simple stitches and Christmassy felt, these don’t take long to make.
Because of the added touches such as the snowflake on the hat, and the shoes, these look more like the store-bought think, but with an added touch of homemade love.

Another gnome sewing pattern, but this one is a little different.
Most of the gnomes on people’s lists are for the wintertime when things are getting festive, but these are fall-inspired.
We love the warmer colors and patterns and like the addition of the leaf motif.
They have a sweater-type body that looks fun and adorable and would sit nicely around the house when things are starting to get cozy.

Call it a Christmas gnome or holiday gnome, the important thing is that has a beard that looks like it has been growing all its life, and a big hat and nose.
These are on the tall side, making it possible to put them in a candle holder to keep them in place. There are some nice touches to make them a little fancier including the holly on the hat, and the eyes.
The instructions are designed to make this as easy as possible, and we think they have done a good job of it.

With the use of a machine, this design should;t take long and it will be one of the first things out of the Christmas cupboard when the time comes.
