Gingerbread and Ruffles

Our latest addition to her food collection are these felt gingerbread cookies, and the shirt is the latest addition to her wardrobe.

Gingerbread Ruffle Shirt

The cookies were super simple. I used cookie cutters to trace them. I traced two for each cookie. On one piece, I embroidered eyes and a mouth. Then I placed it on top of another piece and stitched them together. Lastly, I cut really small circles and glued them on with fabric glue.

The shirt is adorable on her! I did it with my own spur of the moment dimensions, but this is a good tutorial to help you understand the basics of making a peasant shirt. I’ve used it before for other shirts. I used some fabric my mom had given me a while back and added three ruffles to the front. Can you tell I have Christmas on the brain?? lol.

Look at the yummy cookies!

    Very cute.

    Thanks so much, I’ve been on a felt food kick, and these are too cute to resist! Since your blog says its okay, I’ll probably borrow your pic of the cookies and link it back to your post since I’m sure mine won’t be nearly as cute!
    Thanks again! And let me know if you don’t want me to do that. I usually ask first, but your profile says its okay to use with a link back.
