Pin your image onto the folded piece of felt and cut around the shape so that you’ll have two gingerbread man felt shapes.
Take a scrap piece of white felt and cut 4 wavy strips. The only need to be as wide as the arms and legs of your gingerbread man.
Then cut out two green circles and a red smile shape. Use a red scrap piece of ribbon for the belt and two black buttons for the eyes.
Pin on all your felt and ribbon pieces and sew them on with coordinating thread.
Trim your pieces.
Now sew on your button eyes with black embroidery thread.
Now sandwich the two gingerbread man shapes together, right sides facing in and pin together.
Sew around the edge, leaving a 2-3 inch gap for turning it right side out.
If the toy is for a young child, just stuff with poly-fill, otherwise place your jingle bell inside the head of the gingerbread man.
Then stuff the pieces of your plastic bag in each leg.
Fill your gingerbread man with the poly-fill, then sew the opening shut using a ladder stitch.
And you’re finished! Give your guy a little jingle and crinkle his little legs. Perfect for a learning baby. Or cute for a child.
Enjoy! Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
