As I write this I am hoping that this gang of gingerbread lovelies will have almost made it to their destination in the U.S.A.
A very lovely lady named Mary ((hello)) asked if I could make 5 custom gingerbread people decorations. 3 boys, 2 girls (that looked different to the boys) and with name embroidered on the backs.....
I have to say I had forgotten how much I enjoy hand sewing, I used to love doing cross stitch and tapestry when I was younger.
I took as many photos as I could before I wrapped them up to post. I love these gingerbread girls and boys the most. I love making things to order but there is just something extra special about custom orders, really personal.
They aren't listed in my Etsy shop but if you are interested in custom gingerbread boys or girls, drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org they look fantastic on a Christmas tree.
