Christmas Sewing Craft - Fabric Gingerbread Ornament

This particular little guy is only 2 inches high and is perfect for decorating small trees or even Chrismas gifts. Use a cookie cutter as a template to create this tasty character. If you use a larger cookie cutter, you may need to substitute the small beads with larger ones to accomodate the proportional difference.



Felt Gingerbread Man Ornament

Time required: about 30 minutes

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- brown felt
- white, black and red sewing thread
- 5 seed beads for buttons
- 1 x 4mm red bead
- fiberfill to stuff the gingerbread man
- sewing needle

1. Place the cookie cutter onto the brown felt and trace twice around the template.
