Pattern Description:

Template and instructions to make this gingerbread girl applique and gingerbread boy applique.

You will use fabric and other supplies to create these cute appliques. The photo(s) is simply an example of what the finished item could look like.

Each applique will be approximately 7 inches. You can certainly make them print out to any size you like by simply adjusting the printing settings. If you are unsure how to do this or are having difficulty, just contact me and I'll be happy to adjust the size for you.

My templates also come with LOTS tips, techniques, ideas, and any information that I think you will find helpful. I've even added a page of illustrations for the most popular embroidery stitches along with the stitches I used to create the applique shown. I give you an illustration and a photograph showing you what the finished project can look like. These are to guide you for correct placement of appliques as well as give you ideas for finishing by using other supplies.

All my illustrations and templates are drawn in a computer program so you will have neat and crisp lines. I also give you guides for where your stitching lines and embellishments will go.

Ideas for using the appliques:
Scrapbooking & card making
Clothing items such as aprons, shirts, baby bibs, jackets
Tote bags, book covers, tea towels
Placemats, pot holders, wall hangings, table runners
Christmas stockings, tree skirts, ornaments
The possibilities are ENDLESS!
