Hey! It’s my Birthday!!! I’ve designed a bonus birthday gnome to celebrate! You can use this gnome as replacement for your birthday month or a family/friends birthday in the blanket or just use this gnome on it’s own. As always, I am including a boy and girl option with either the cute cupcake on the tummy or up on the hat. Please feel free to choose your own colors and mix and match the designs. The striped hat has a lot of color changes so you might want to stick with a solid color. I used brown hair for my girl to match my own brown hair so you can customize your gnome to fit the birthday person!
I am making little french knots for the sprinkles on the cupcake and it works perfectly! I have a very short YouTube Tutorial below on how to make a french knot.
