A Gingerbread Boy

Elizabeth worked on her first handmade tree ornimant today. I cut out the pattern and she began placing the buttons where they looked best.
Once the button placement was decided she stitched them on and made the nose and mouth with embroidery floss.
After that she began stitching the front and back together.
Here is how the gingerbread boy looks before his stuffing.
And here he is all cozy on the tree.
Elizabeth is so happy with her little boy and has given him the name Daniel.

Way to go Elizabeth, Daniel is a wonderful gingerbread boy and I like the fact that you gave him a name. That makes him special and it doesn't matter how many more gingerbread boys you make as you grow up, you will always remember your first one "because he was named Daniel"
