  2. I’ve always feared dolls since I was a little girl. Something about the eyes, I think. But I LOVE the gnomes. No eyes to follow me round and try to steal my soul. I think….. anyway…lol I wanted to thank you for sharing this group of patterns. They are all adorable in their own way and easy to follow.
