Step One: MEASURE your babyâ€™s head. This kit should work for most babies and some toddlers, with heads up to 22 inches (approx. 55 cm) in circumference.
Step Two: CUT out hat pieces and beard pieces.
Step Three: SEW three hat pieces together along the indicated seam lines, with patterned sides of fabric facing. Repeat for other three hat pieces, then sew the two halves together, turn up hem, and sew in place. (Add optional elastic now, if desired.) Turn hat inside out and test for fit. (OMG your baby is adorable in that hat!)
Step Four: SEW the two beard pieces together with right sides facing, leaving a gap where indicated. Turn the beard inside out, then top stitch around the edge.
Step Five: ADD hook-and-loop (Velcro) tabs to the back of the beard, one on the left, and one on the right. Add corresponding hook-and-loop tabs to the hat by testing for fit and marking with a felt-tip pen, then machine-sewing the hook-and-loop fastener in place. Make sure to stitch the hook-and-loop on securely (donâ€™t use stick-on hook-and-loop, as this creates a choking hazard).
Step Six: You have your very own Baby Gnome! What a cutie! *Remember: babies should only dress as gnomes when properly supervised by a responsible adult.

Congratulations! I can just picture all the baby gnomes parading in their prams wearing their pointy hats and this this year's fashion accessory, colour co-ordinated fleecy beards!

Congrats! What an adorable photo too!
It's a victory for bearded babies everywhere! Congrats on your placing!
Thanks, all! I'll be ordering a swatch this afternoon; if you'd like me to message you when it's available for purchase, let me know!
Great job; congrats!
Congrats on top 10! Very cute gnome!
Congrats on top 10!
Congrats to you and your baby Gnome!! :)
Congrats on top 10!
Aw, thanks everyone! My kiddo is such a good sport for a seven-month-old.
I love the idea for using it as a winter hat . . . maybe make it a size larger and line it with fleece? And for anyone who, like Cean, finds their baby suddenly beardless with autumn here, you could line the beard with fleece as well. ;)
I have been toying with the idea of making this in a few different hat/beard colors, since It would give me a few more designs for a sampler . . .
Oh my, you're right, your baby does look adorable in that hat. Love your sidebar. You know, if you remove the beard after Halloween, the hat could be worn all winter, how cute would that be?
Love it! And you've got a great model!
Aw Snap! I just shaved my baby! This is so completely awesome, and a fabulous idea! your gnome model is amazing, too. He looks so suave and natural in his facial hair. you should maybe market a whole line of different hair colored baby beards! It will be the next big thing! you've got my vote!
So cute! love those project photos too!
I love it! So cute. Good thing my baby already has a beard. ;)

I printed up a sample on my ink jet, and sewed it together in about 20 minutes. Isn't he a sweet little gnome?
What a cute little gnome! Maybe my little gd lucy can be a gnome!
Too cute, great idea!
Your baby looks adorable in his costume - but with a definite, "what is happening to me?" look. This is a great idea for tiny tots.
Ha ha, "if your baby already has a beard, skip step number 4", y'know, just in case... love your design and love your sidebar!
Oh man that is ADORABLE!! Hahahaha - too cute!! The photo insert rocks :D
I can imagine I'll get the stink eye from my little guy, too . . . If only they knew how cute they are!
Bwhahahaha. My son was a garden gnome for his first-ever Halloween. A mere 2.5 months old, he still managed to shoot me the hairy eyeball a few times after donning the outfit. HIlarious!
