 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

- 5 seed beads for buttons
