Whip this sweet toy up for the sweet baby in your life!

I've been in love with Waldorf inspired toys and gnomes, and I ran across one of these and I thought "I can make that!"
I don't remember where I seen it, but when I do I will post it so the original artist will get the credit.
It's basically 2 washclothes and some no-pill fleece for the hat.
This would make an easy (and cheap) gift for a new baby.
I think I might make one with a red hat and a green hat too!

    Lay your piece of fleece around your little gnomes head and
    place a pin so you know where to start sewing.
    take it off the gnomes head.
    I layed a piece of thread on the fleece so you can see how you
    need to cut and sew your hat. (The thread is not really on the hat)
