So the other day, I saw this free pattern for a half eaten gingerbread man ornament and I just loved it! I knew I had to make one since it seemed simple enough and I’m pretty sure I’m not going to get around to making our personalized Christmas stockings until AFTER Christmas when the Christmas fabric I like goes on sale. And that Christmas tree skirt I want to make? It’ll have to wait until Christmas in July.
But this guy, he’s easy. I already had all of the things I needed to make him although I did substitute white buttons over the red buttons the tutorial shows and I used normal sized rick rack instead of mini, but I still think he’s cute.
So I’m thinking this ornament making should be a yearly tradition in our home. Once Jude is old enough, I think he should be the one that decides what the ornament should be and then we’ll figure out how to make it!
So here’s Jude’s ornament for 2009. Because goodness knows that this child likes to eat and if he was eating solid foods he certainly would take some chomps out of a gingerbread man.
