WOYWW :: Gingerbread men!!!

I am in the process of tidying my craft room for chrsitmas as it has been manic around here lately and the mess has built up, so I have resorted to doing what I always do when it is a mess.... crafting on my laptop!!

It is the only bit of my craft room that is never too cluttered!!
So while i am sowing you my workdesk (AKA Laptop!!) I thought i would show you what i was making too!!!
These are inspired by my crafty friend Helen and her love of gingerbread men!!
I think she will see this post before the little fella gets through her letterbox - so if you are reading this Helen Happy Christmas - He is on his way!

I am far from the best sewer, but i just love felt and things made from it, I have lots of felt that i buy and stroke but never have the confidence to make things with, so this is my first attempt at a felt decoration, they are far from perfect but made with love for a few special people!

It wouldn't me a Lisa project if it did not involve die cutting!! So i am pleased to tell you these little men were not cut by hand, oh no they were cut with this die here (656726 Sizzix Originals Die - Gingerbread Man #3 by Rachael Bright)

I hope everyone who receives one thinks he is as cute as i do despite the "home made" look he carries in his stitching!
