Don't be fooled by the name "Gnomework", this friendly, forest dwelling gnome fellow is all play. Surrounded by modern, abstract mushrooms, he's right at home in a poplar forest. The gnome and woodland scene is made using a series of beginner embroidery stitches, including a backstitch (he's mostly backstitch...easy peasy), detached chain (link) for his beard, satin stitch, and two French knots for eyes. BTW The satin stitch is edged with a backstitch because it looks great AND hides any imperfections so you always look like a pro. It's like magic!
The preprinted embroidery pattern in unbleached cotton fabric arrives with a bamboo ring, stitch guide, instructions, embroidery floss and embroidery needle...everything you need to complete this beautiful piece of needlework art.
