It Takes Just One Felted Gnome to Start a Village
Re-sharing this fab needle felting tutorial for felted gnomes by Diane Beauchner!
These wonderful gnomes were all created by Diane Beauchner of Allentown, Pennsylvania! She is going to share with us how she made her “gnome villiage.”
“What began as an idea to create something out of alpaca fiber that might sell well at an “all-crafts-must-be-handmade” craft fair, has grown into a village of gnomes… It all began during the holiday season when I spied a gnome in a catalog and decided it would be fun to try to create one out of alpaca fiber. Coincidentally, The Knitter’s Edge, my local yarn shop in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was holding a class on “How to Create a Needle Felted Gnome” and so… off we went to learn how to needle felt a gnome. With one class under my belt I was off to the races and by the next class I had overachieved and had created 13 friends for my first gnome!”
