I have created a lot of designs the last 20 years, and I was thinking the other day that projects look so interesting when you change up the fabrics used. I came across this one.. let me tell you about it.
This is Gran's Gingerbread. The rolling pin belong to my Granny, although she didn't do much baking! The green bowl is for one she had filled with goodies for us each time we visited.
I filled it with gingerbread men, because at Christmas Time Granny figured MORE was better... I may take after her that way as I also put the embroidery in this pattern too! It's fun and easy to embroidery this on a tea towel, for a little wall hanging or to frame.
I'm offering my pattern for $5.00 as a download pattern... and keep reading, I have TWO variations to show you!
I had a BLAST with my friend Ann of Gingham Girls last night shopping for JUST the right cookies for this photo. This is a very serious job we designer have to do, find props, yummy props, in the right colors. But I digress!
We don't always have time to make a full project, but we almost ALWAYS have time to make a smaller version! Being obsessed with French General fabric lately I got a 'pre bundle' of Pondicherry, but all French General will work. I took just a section of the table runner, made 3 Gingerbread men, then added a 2"wide border. Filled my Granny's white Poinsettia bowl with cookies.. and you have a perfect mini quilt or table topper to use or give! It would be adorable to give with a tray of cookies
And what about just a single Gingerbread man? yes please!
I'm using my Sunday Drive, available in your favorite shops in Feb! I put him on an 6.5" square with 2.5" wide squares done as sew & flip on the corners. Are you sewing along with me and making my Splendid Sampler, it's a perfect addition or combine with your favorite blocks for a wall hanging... fun fun! and I LOVE these super sharp, very gorgeous black scissors,
