Tucked away on the side of a hill, you'll find this "grass-covered" dwelling...and, if you sit patiently without making a sound, the family of gnomes may appear!
Reminiscent of a hobbit hole you might find in the Shire, this handcrafted Gnome Home was designed from original sketches and includes some special features unique to the homes of Hobbiton! The house you make from our pattern makes an adorable "earthy" dwelling for your tiny dolls or fairies.
The back of the house opens up to reveal a spacious ground floor and an upper loft. Included is a pattern & instruction booklet with step-by-step directions with diagrams, color photographs and full-size patterns. A zig-zag sewing machine is required to complete this project.

Construction: The finished house measures 8½" high, 12" wide & 9" deep. The house is not quilted or filled with batting, but has very firm, fabric-covered walls made with a revolutionary, ultra-stiff stablizer that is easy to sew through, but makes the completed house quite durable. Techniques used are sewing by machine and by hand (straight & zigzag stitching, plus hand whip stitching), and simple rug latch hooking.
Skill Level: Although not suggested as a first time project, it is appropriate for a beginner with moderate sewing machine experience ages 12 to adult. (Latch hooked roof can be completed by ages 8 and up.)
