Create this adorable felted Tomten who’ll look after your hearth and home as you slumber. He only requires a small bowl of julegrot (Christmas porridge with butter) on Christmas Eve. In this class you’ll first learn to create a moveable “half-penny” doll with cotton wrapped wire and embroidery floss. Next you’ll fashion his head with simple needle felting techniques. Learn a few basic embroidery stitches embellish the Tomten’s clothing. To finish your trusted protector, you’ll add the Fimo wooden shoes that Denise provides for you. Your completed gnomish gentleman will work for you tirelessly - just don’t forget the julegrot!
