Gingerbread Girl!

I am in lalalalove with this
Gingerbread girl shirt I just made!!
It may be because I have been cooped in...
thanks to the f.r.e.e.z.i.n.g snowy weather outside...
but I just can't get enough of this shirt!

Here's the lowdown on how to make this sweetie!
First I had printed Allikaye some coloring sheets,
which gave me the idea.
I used it as my template,
there's a boy and a girl!
Go here.
Then I traced it onto some felt...
20 cents at Walmart!

Then I sewed on some pretty ric rac...
I just love me some pretty ric rac!

After I sewed on a smile..with black felt...
I hand-sewed some sequin buttons for this pretty girl...
Starry Cat wanted to help...
Then added some more sequins for the eyes!

Next I sewed this gingerbread chick
right on to Allikaye's pretty pink shirt!
But I thought she needed a little more girly accessory
on that bald head...
so a bow was perfect!
How cute!!!
Allikaye lalaloves it just as much as me!
We are having a Gingerbread House Decorating Party
on Friday over here...
so this will be the PERFECT shirt
for the festivities!!

Oh yeah!
