Adorable Poseable Ginger Bread Folk Project!




Love these cute Ginger Bread Folk


The project sheet is from Hancock Fabrics. They will be found all posing over my house this holiday! Love the way they can hold a candy cane.

These look so simple to make.  LOL, but I am already enhancing the 'simple' in my head by planning to use the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine on the edges.  I am thinking these may even be thin enough to add to my Christmas Cards this year (hmmm...) I have some rick rack scraps and pipe cleaners already. I will add ribbon loop hangers on some for my tree.

I am also going to enhance with leftover beads and lace.
