Gnome Bottle Cover and Gift Bag

The gnomes are here to take over this Christmas! Let’s make the gnome bottle cover and gift bag. This definitely is the best gift bag idea and the most creative one you can think of this Christmas. Just look at how that gnome bottle cover sits on the bottle giving you the impression that it’s a full gnome. So friends, pick up your sewing tools and have fun making some beautiful gift bags for your friends and family.

Materials needed:

  • 1/3 yard (or a fat quarter) of cotton fabric for the drawstring bag (gnome body)
  • about 9” x 6” long faux fur fabric for the beard
  • 1/8 yard faux sherpa fabric for the hat trim (optional)
  • scraps of coordinating fabrics for the arms, hands, nose, and hat
  • a narrow strip of fabric for the drawstring, but you could use 22” of narrow ribbon or cording
  • polyester fiberfill for the arms 
  • a couple 12’’ (or longer) pipe cleaners or a piece of bendable wire for the hat (optional)
  • a fabric marking pen or chalk pen
  • seam ripper
  • bodkin or safety pin
  • a hand sewing needle and strong thread
  • for sewing a girl gnome, you’ll also need 2 clear small hair elastics and up to 1 yard of ribbon
