Christmas Gnomes

Happy Holidays! These little Christmas Gnomes are a great addition to your holiday decorations.

They are quick and easy to make and super cute!

I used flannel fabric for the hat and felt for the body. My favorite part is the sparkly pom poms I found for the tops!

The beard is faux fur and gives the little gnomes a lot of character. I also picked up a mixed set of wooden beads at Walmart that work great as noses!

Each gnome is filled with polyfil and poly pellets to weigh them down.


  • Felt Fabric (Body)
  • Flannel Fabric (Hat)
  • Faux Fur with a long pile (Beard)
  • Pom Pom
  • Wooden Bead (Nose)
  • Polyfil Stuffing
  • Poly Pellets (or another filler to weigh down the gnome)
  • Coordinating Thread


The Medium sized gnome body is approximately 8.25 inches tall when finished. The Large sized is 9.25 inches. These measurements are WITOUT the hat.

New! Additional Sizes:

Below is an example of the assembled XL Body and Slouchy Hat Patterns.

Please note the image is NOT actual size. To make the XL gnome, download and print the pattern linked above the image, then cut and tape the pieces together as shown.

Note: The small gnome pattern has been updated! The first version of the pattern did not include the hat, etc. A special thanks to Wendy for letting me know so that could be updated!

Instructions for adding feet and arms:

The small pattern includes feet and arms. Here are written instructions for how to add them to your gnome.

Fabric used:

Gray Snowflake flannel

Holly Gray and White (no longer available in flannel)

Craft Felt

Faux Fur



I hope you enjoy this project!
Happy Holidays!

    Thanks for the patterns. They turn out so cute. Your small size only has the body pattern. Is it possible to get the rest? TIA Wendy

        Thank you for your question! I can see the confusion! Some pieces were printed double since they didn’t fit on the paper and were cut off. I posted an example of what the XL pattern will look like when taped together. The picture is posted on the website just below the link to download the pattern. I hope this helps to clarify. Thank you!

        Thank you so much for letting me know. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. I tested all of the patterns but was unable to detect a malfunction. I am so sorry, I am not sure why it wasn’t able to print for you.

    Thank you so much for sharing your patterns. I’m looking forward to making a gnome or two ๐Ÿ™‚ with your patterns. My question to you is with your small gnome pattern you added arms and feet…do you have a video of you putting a gnome together with the arms and feet? If so, I’d love to see it. THANKS!

    • SewEvermore says:

      Thank you so much for letting me know! I am sorry for the inconvenience. I went through all of the gnome patterns and tested downloading them using two different browsers. Unfortunately, I was unable to locate an error as they all downloaded successfully. If you have access to a different internet browser, that may be a solution. If it still doesn’t work, if you could let me know specifically which file you are trying to download I will take a closer look at it and see if there is anything I can do. Sorry again!

    I love these gnomes and particularly the hat fabric. I am in the UK and trying to find identical fabric with no luckโ€ฆI am not sure of the โ€˜flannelโ€™ equivalent in the uk but I would love the same design you have usedโ€ฆit is lovely. Are you able to share a link for this please? Many thanks

    • SewEvermore says:

      Hello! I posted links just above the video instructions for the fabric I used. I purchased all of the fabrics at JoAnn Fabrics. Unfortunately, it was quite a while ago, and not all of the fabrics are available this season but many of them are! Hope this is helpful!

      Hi Chrissy, in the UK the equivalent to flannel would be called brushed cotton. Hope you manage to find a design you like. ๐Ÿ™‚
