Teeny Tiny Tomte

This teeny tiny Tomte is  something I just had to make. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen it, but I can’t resist posting it once again because it’s so little and fun.

I’d seen these little Tomtes on my feed and thought about making one. Then I read Kitty’s post at nightquilter.com, her little Tomte was so cute, I had to get the pattern.

Moss & Lotus designed these cute little guys. The patterns are paper pieced and there are several Tomte designs, including this little 2″ fellow.  There is also a Tomte Sew Along on Instagram where you can see all the creative fun going on.

My little Tomte is made with little pieces of the fabric that Rose sent me. It takes me just a couple of minutes to make one block. I used some of the string Rose tied the fabric bundle with to make the loop for hanging.

Next up is to make one of the larger patterns. I’m just having trouble trying to decide which one! Join along in the Tomte fun. If you do, I want to see a picture!

Linking up today with Susan at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers and Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s Bee Social.  

Happy Stitching!

    1. Actually, it’s just an ornament I made and I taped it to the inside of the cup to hold it there. But I think you could use the block to make a cute little tea bag holder, so give that some thought!
