Felt gingerbread men

This was the free kit with the recent edition of Prima Makes Magazine.

The gingerbread men shapes were pre-cut in the felt, which took some of the magic  out of making it yourself (or hassle depending on our point of view). The white detail was sticky backed felt which I'd not used before, and seems like a great idea, although the stickiness wasn't sticky enough so I also stitched these in place.

The hardest bit was stuffing the arms and legs, I ended up using the bobbly end of a knitting needle to push the stuffing into the appendages.
