Felt Gingerbread Men

Here is a gingerbread man I made out of felt. These are really easy to make. I cut out two shapes of gingerbread men in orange felt. I used different coloured felt to make the eyes.mouth,nose and buttons. I also used some of mums white ric rac.  I then sewed them together with blanket stitch.I stuffed it with wadding. My little sister also made one similar to mine, she glued her parts on but she did get mum to help her with the blanket stitching. The photo below shows both our gingerbread men.

Small Pillow

The photograph above shows a small pillow I made for my best friend.

I made this with 2 rectangle shapes of red fleece. I decorated one of the pieces with hand stitches. I then put both pieces of fleece together and blanket stitched all the way around leaving a small space. I filled this pillow with some wadding and then closed up the gap with some more sewing.  I think my friend really liked her gift.

Pocket Warmers

The photograph above is of a pocket warmer I actually made. I made this from pink fleece. I cut out 2 heart shaped pieces and then hand sewed them together, leaving a small gap. I filled this with rice and then closed the gap.

These are put into the microwave just before leaving the house. It is best to make 2 of these, I put these in my coat pockets in the morning. When I am on my way to school on a cold morning I can warm my hands up in my pockets. These are really so easy to make.
