Here’s the little gnome family
Standing in a row
Three of them are missing
Three I need to sew!

“Can I find the energy?
The children each want one.
The Christmas clock is ticking
I hope I get them done!”

Grandpa is helping me build a tree house doll house for the toddlers…. But when the “big kids” saw the play dolls they thought they might like to play too!  These are simple to make, chenille pipe cleaners and wooden beads wrapped into a body. And then felt cut into clothes and blanket stitched around the bodies to decorate. Lots of stitches and tightly wrapped pipe cleaners make them pretty toddler friendly.
