Attention holiday crafters! Today there's a new toy pattern in the shop. And before Thanksgiving even. Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that was possible. The Mr. and Mrs. Gnome pattern is available as a downloadable PDF pattern (like the make-a-longs). The instant gratification of not dealing with a printer is pretty darn appealing. If I wasn't such a sucker for printed matter we'd definitely be running a paperless office around here.
I owe a huge thanks to all my wonderful pattern testers. They came up with some really great ideas (spray adhesive - brilliant!) and caught all my mistakes, and all at lightning speed. Thanks to them gnome-making should be a really enjoyable experience.
** updated to add: I set up a gnomes flickr group for you super speedy types ;)
