You cannot download the video TUTORIALs from Creative Fabrica. But you can download the Gnome PATTERN by going to Lesson 2 titled "tools & supplies" where you can click on the files to download to your computer. This is standard for all Creative Fabrica classes - download files are available on the 2nd lesson. Hope that helps!

Thanks Terrie! The free Gnome sewing pattern can be found on lesson 2 of this class "Tools & Supplies" so you can download it from there. I know it's a bit confusing. I hope to see your finished Gnomes posted as a class project!
