As one of literally three lady gnomes living at The Gnome Abode, the guys naturally looked to me to mend their torn overalls and ripped shirts. Just when you think you’re living in the 21st century, right?
But I didn’t let my feminism get the best of me. I gave this wonky machine a chance, and it gave me a chance in return.
Sorry boys, I’ve found a new love. And it’s not you.
I told the boys to bug off while I made something for myself. I’ve been wearing the same, tired old dress every damn day for years now. It was time I made myself a skirt…A GNOME SKIRT!
You wouldn’t probably think to look at it, but skirt-making is an incredibly tedious process. There’s a zipper, and a hook, and an eye, and this weird stuff called interfacing, and even though you have a machine you have to sew some stuff by hand.
Personally, I still think that whole hand sew thing is whack. This is the technology age for godssake!
But after several weeks of trials and tribulations…voilà! A completed skirt!
Have you caught the sewing bug? Itching to pick up some gnome fabric of your own? Check out these awesome gnome fabrics!
- Gnome Living Gnome Collage Bright (what I used here)
- Michael Miller fabric Gnomeville gnomes dots – Children Fabric – Fabric (what I want to use next)
- Michael Miller Gnome for the Holidays Blue (what I’m stocking up on for holiday gifts)
Any other gnome seamstresses out there? I’d love to see your stuff. Red rover, red rover, send gnome pics right over!
