Felt Gingerbread Man

Having no power for nine days, gave me lots of time to create (thanks Hurricane Sandy followed by the snowstorm that dumped over a foot of snow)!

I love working with felt and decided to make my son, a felt Gingerbread man, to go along with one of his favorite Christmas books, Gingerbread Friends.


First, I cut out a pattern using recycled newspaper

Then, I pinned the pattern to 2 sheets of brown felt

After cutting out my felt pieces, I then cut out all of my embellishments to decorate my gingerbread man. I did simple stitching to add my embellishments and a blanket stitch, to sew my gingerbread man together. I stuffed him as I went along.

Here he is!
