How to Make a Handmade Felt Gingerbread Ornaments

Start by cutting out the gingerbread body – You’ll need a front and a back for each ornament you make.

Sew the details onto the front. When cutting the zig-zag ribbon I recommend cutting it long enough to wrap around the back of the front piece of the body felt for a more finished edge.

Cut the zig zag ribbon long enough to tuck it around the back of the top 
felt piece and sew in place.
