This is so easy you won’t believe it. Once you make one you will want to keep making them for birthdays and holidays. Alot of bang for not alot of effort!
First pick out three coordinating fabrics. I chose a solid green, red with polka dots and gingerbread pattern that incorporated the same colors.
Cut triangles out of each fabric, about 6-8 of each. To cut triangles make yourself a paper or cardboard pattern so that each triangle is the same size. Mine were about 8 inches long.
Once they are all cut out. Place two triangles wrong sides together and stitch about 1/2 inch in from the edge around the two long sides of the triangle. No need to stitch the top because it will be covered with the double bias tape.
Once you are finished with all of the stitching take your pinking shears and cut outside of all of the stitched edges. This not only is really cute but will keep them from fraying. I of course then realized that I made all of my gingerbread men upside down, but hey, it adds character! Right?
Take your double bias tape. Pin each triangle in place inside of the seam equal distance apart. Don’t forget to put them in some sort of order. Stitch along double bias tape to secure triangles and close the opening.
This entire project takes about half and hour.
I made one as a teachers gift for Ezra’s first grade teacher so she can hang it in the classroom and also one for the boy’s playroom.
