Jolly cookie shapes

The knitting’s as easy as pie—easier, actually! Once your knitted piece is fully felted, simply use the included templates (or trace your own favorite cookie cutters) to cut ‘dough’ into jolly cookie shapes. Decorate as desired (we’ve included embroidery instructions). Hang them on your tree, tie them onto packages, string garlands—you get the idea. Yum!

Before felting: Approx. 26” / 66cm around x 8½“ / 22cm high.
After felting and cutting open: Approx. 22” / 56cm around x 5½” / 14cm high.
Yield: 5 or 6 gingerbread people, or a variety of shapes and sizes.
