Two new collections have popped up for spring, Bird and Flower Inspired Gnomes For Your Homes. These gnomes can be found in my shop at www.gnomesforyourhomes.co.uk.
The Bird Gnomes:
These gnomes have been inspired by the colours of the British Birds that have been hopping around my apple tree this Winter.
Roderik is incredibly soft. I used a buff bamboo fiber as the base then blended on orange-red merino, dark brown alpaca and red firestar for sparkle.
Timothy's hat is a blend of merino, Icelandic, BFL and Moorit Shetland wool, Tussah Silk with a little silver Angelina fibre in oatmeal, grey, deep green and olive.
Sylvester's hat is a blend of ash, chocolate, and tan merino; black bamboo; beige linen fibre; gold firestar for sparkle.
The Flower Gnomes:
These felted gnomes were inspired by all the early bulb flowers that start rearing their heads at the end of winter.
Toren's hat is made from a blend of dark pink, orange, olive and yellow merino wool; yellow and red linen fibres; pink Angelina fibre for sparkle.
Jonquil's hat is made of merino wool; bamboo, Firestar and Angelina fibres in shades of yellow and green. He has been potted in a terracotta mini pot.
Cupid's hat made of soft merino in shades of pink, coral and red; silky pink bamboo and Angelina fibre. He has been potted in a terracotta mini pot.
Ivan's hat is blended with different shades of blue merino, firestar and silk noils; and yellow blue faced Leicester locks.
Bartholomew's hat represents the coming of the Spring Snowdrops by combining bright green merino and soya fibre; white Blue Faced Leicester, rose fibre and Angelina fibre for sparkle.
