What size peg dolls are needed for this project? The 3 inch seem too big?
The peg dolls we linked to in the post are the size we used 🙂
These are so cute! Just a heads-up that the link to the peg dolls goes to an Amazon page that has the wrong size peg dolls for the pattern — they are 3 inches high whereas the gnomes in the pattern look to be maybe half that size? Anyway I just printed out the pattern at 120% and that is doing the trick and I am just making bigger gnomes! So excited to see how they turn out!
Thank you for letting us know Wendy! We will correct the link to lead to the correct size peg dolls. 🙂
These are the cutest things that I have seen in a while. Absolutely in love with your sweet felt gnomes. I’m overseas at the moment and can’t get delivery from the felt you recommend, can I just ask, would cheap felt achieve this as well or do I need a thicker, sturdier type of felt to create this project?
Yes I think any felt will work OK for this! So glad you love them 🙂
