Gingerbread men

What was your source for this embroidery project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Urban Threads Link to website or photo www.urbanthreads.com/search.aspx?qs=gingerbread&df=Machine Tell us more about what inspired you. These were made as Xmas tree decorations What are you most proud of? The cutting and stuffing was a bit tricky, but I am very happy with the end result. What advice would you give someone starting this project? These are in-the-hoop men: I embroidered the front, then glued (with temporary adhesive) the backing to the bottom of the wash-away stabilizer. I added a duplicate outline stitching as a final step - the second outline stitching was modified to allow an opening for stuffing the men. After washing away the stabilizer, I cut along the outline stitching before stuffing the men to plump them up. I also added a bit of ribbon before I glued the backing to the stabilizer. Lots of fun to make!

You Can Make This

Eva Blue made Gingerbread men with:

  • Wool felt & Madeira embroidery cotton and my Bernina Aurora. I used miniature pegs to peg them to a red velvet ribbon . The men are about 13 cm in height.
