monsieur, madame gnome

mr. gnome outside

From the aptly named wee wonderfuls pattern collection, it's my pleasure to introduce to you Monsieur and Madame Gnome - an absolute delight to sew, and an even greater delight to look at.
mr. and mrs. outside

Holiday decorations? I think I'll have a hard time packing these away come January. Plus, if M. & M. Gnome stick around, Amelie and Timoun will have others on which to blame their daily mischief.

amelie and timoun

"Amelie, why are all of the pistachios on the floor, and why are some of them half-eaten?"
Amelie responds, "Oh - that. It was Monsieur Gnome. It must have been yet another of his gravity experiments. And, well, you know how it goes ... once something is on the floor, it should be tasted."

Uh huh.

By the way, thanks to all of you who left comments telling me of your love for the Emmeline Apron! For those of you who expressed interest in testing the pattern - stay tuned. Once I have the pattern ready, I will be putting out another call, and will be outlining the requirements and my time frame (it needs to be a somewhat quick turn around, as I want to have these ready to send to the printer before Christmas.) I will only need 3 testers for each pattern - the apron and the messenger bag. You all are awesome - thanks for your enthusiastic response!

xo,
Meg

I am waiting anxiously for the messenger bag pattern. I would love to test it for you before Christmas. I want to make it to use as my carry-on for my bus trip. I already bought a pair of wool pants from Goodwill.

Oh, if you need someone totally new to sewing, who has no clue what she's doing... I could be that tester! I mean, it's important to see how unexperienced sewers would find the pattern, right? (grin)

Just thought I'd mention my TOTAL FREAK OUT when I saw the awesome versions of the gnome bag and emmaline apron the testers came up with. I cannot WAIT to get them both--please, please say early Jan. so I can make that bag for a Jan. 30th bday present!!!!! :) And how great is that apron going to be for Valentine's Day? Wow.
