This is the newest gnome that I've actually got finished. He is also based on the "Rainbow's End" series illustrated by John Patience. We've decided to make a four-season diorama with felted gnomes to enter in the fair. Mom and I planned out the positions of the dolls and accessories, which ended up needing eighteen gnomes! Flap Jack will be standing in his bakery.
This doll is also eight inches tall (including the hat) and took about thirty hours to complete. Click here to see larger pictures.
I have almost finished another little gnome, only it is a lady this time and she will be part of the "Winter" section of the diorama. She is much more loosely based on the book illustrations, so we have given her an "acorn" theme! Pictures to come.
