Make a… gingerbread softie
Step 1 PLACE
the stitching right-sides together with your backing fabric. Machine stitch a few squares outside of the stitching, roughly following the shape of the gingerbread person. Leave a gap at the bottom for turning.
Step 2 REDUCE
the seam allowance and clip the curves, then turn to the right-side. Stuff with toy stuffing and sew up the gap with small, neat stitches.
