After my sons first birthday party his shirt was destroyed by blueberries, blackberries, and red icing. The poor shirt didn’t stand a chance. I was a little sad because the shirt was made especially for him with a little gnome on it that had been hand pieces out of felt. It seemed a shame to throw it out.

After some thought I decided I would cut out the gnome and give the poor guy a second chance. This year I also made my boys Christmas stockings. So I decided the gnome would be perfect for his stocking. I added some trees and snow to make a winter scene. To attach it all to the stocking I used fabric glue. The stocking turned out great and I couldn’t be happier for that little gnome who will be part of our family holiday traditions for years to come.
