Fabulous Publishing Presents: Folklore Crafts Garden Gnomes

First off let me just say...


Seriously, how cute are these?  

By Christine of Muse of the Morning.

And these?  

Designed by Redd of Dame Named Redd

And how about this?                              
By Tara of Sew Tara.

And what's even better, the tutorials and patterns for all these and more are available in one of two book freshly published by Fabulous Publishing! 

"Fabulous Publishing is a new ebook publisher for crafters by crafters. FabPub was founded in 2012 by Shayne Rioux of noveltykitten. Redd Hynes of Geekopolis joined shortly thereafter."

"Made by crafters, for crafters".  Sold! Because who knows us better than ourselves!  The projects are cute enough to draw in the crafting veteran yet simple enough that a beginner need not fear.  

In fact the project I chose to make for the review turned out to be super simple. So easy that when the first one was a bit too small to fit Little Badger, I whipped up a second one in less than 15 minutes!
Want to see?

An extra bonus is that the beard detaches from the hat. Just in case you want to wear the hat solo.

As you can see it was the red one that was a bit on the small side.

If you want to learn how to make your own bearded gnome hat or any of the other cute projects in this or their other book, Folklore Craft Matryoshka,  head over to fabpub.com or folklorecrafts.com to buy your own copy.  Fabulous Publishing believes that craft books should be fun and accessible to everyone, which is why they are offering the books as a PDF download as well as a Print- on-Demand option.

I'm really looking forward to their next books! Coming soon they will be releasing books in The Crafty Hipster series, Monsters! series and Inspired series, including Zombies!, The Crafter Hipster: Owls and Inspired: Artists.

In the mean time, head on over to craftgossip.com tomorrow (May 30th) for the next review in the ebook tour!
