Introducing our second Christmas in July embroidery pattern – The Gingerbread Man! An adorable cookie man making his way through a colorful cookie forest, trying not to be eaten all up.
If you remember the story, the poor little Gingerbread Man meets a devious fox who offers to carry him across the river – but then gobbles him all up instead!
To be totally honest with you, I think the Gingerbread Man story is a little unfair. I think we’re supposed to think he’s smug, like the Hare, who is so overly confident that he manages to lose a race to a slow-ass tortoise*. But the Gingerbread Man just wants to not be chewed alive, which seems fair enough to me, you know?!
All the project stats are in listed on the product page. I might be biased, but I think this one is really fun to work up – we planned the stitching out to mimic gingerbread and icing!
