Needle Felting a Gnome

Gnomes are a fabled race of dwarf like creatures that live underground and guard treasure hoards.  As far as I am concerned, gnomes are real.  If you search the internet, there are so many types of gnomes and so many ways to make them.  I spent a few good hours looking at video tutorials before I worked out how I would like to make my very first gnome.  Firstly, most gnomes have red hats and blue shirts.  They also have beards.  They are also not very tall.  I always enjoy how others make their gnomes.  Some people even use wire armatures.  I still haven’t ventured into making anything with a full armature.  I wanted my first gnome to be easy, but still cute.  Here he is.
