roaming gnome costume

roaming gnome costume

roaming gnome halloween costume

gnome hat
Pattern: is mine, the specs are in the blog post--they are Zimmerman-esque at best.

Materials: red felt and red thread

gnome jacket
Pattern: Simplicity 3997 (the Camie shirt)
Materials 1.5 yards of stretchy denimish fabric purchased from JoAnn's Fabric and Craft, blue matching thread and three buttons.

Notes: I went with size 4 because I knew this was going to be a jacket and needed more ease. This if the first garment I have ever sewn so it's not perfect (far from it, actually), but for a day, it'll do.

gnome pants
Are corduroy cargo pants that Target so graciously had on sale for me.

gnome boots
...also from Target. They were the Uda green frog rain boots. I covered them from top to bottom in black electrical tape.

The things that I will do to make my kid happy.
