Sewing gingerbread people
I started this gingerbread decoration project hmm, last summer, I pulled them out, to see it the kids were keen to have a sew. Of course they were!
Luna’s two gingerbread people. Looking fabulous, she asked for a little help with the mouth (on the left) after she made a cute little mouth on the right. She wanted to use a ‘rainbow of buttons’.
Blake made a crane an the left, and a gingerbread person with ‘all the green buttons’. For a first attempt at hand sewing, he picked it up straight away, totally understood the button sewing technique – very impressive! After that, he was mostly interested in playing with all the off cuts from hand cutting out felt flowers…
Annnnnd, I made a couple of hair clips.
