Patterns Included for a Charming Gingerbread Man Bunting and Matching Mug Rug!
These happy gingerbread men will be a welcome addition to your kitchen, whether for the holidays or all year around. Their quirky charm is sure to bring a smile!
Make them up into bunting or a mug rug – or both. The designer, The Patchsmith, provides plenty of variations with the two patterns.
Gingerbread Man Bunting
The bunting can be crafted in two ways.
This pattern comes with two versions – one using fusible webbing and one which is stitched together. The fusible webbing men are firmer whilst the stitched men are more rustic. Make one of each and decide which you like best. The pattern includes both options.
Use a cookie cutter for the pattern and decorate the little guys with buttons and other embellishments.
Or, use the pattern included with the mug rug instructions (the link is below, under the mug rug description).
A single gingerbread man with a pretty ribbon for hanging will make a lovely ornament for the tree or for decorating a gift.
Gingerbread Man Mug Rug
This cute quilted mug rug features a charming gingerbread man and a mug of steaming coffee, tea, cider, hot chocolate – well, whatever hot beverage suits you – along with a peppermint stick.
A lovely variation is the mug rug made with three gingerbread men in a row, as seen on the top shelf in the photo below. This also gives you a good idea of how the mug rug would look when used as a small wall quilt. To make it, simply line up three gingerbread men from the pattern.
According to the designer:
The mug (rug) is constructed using my quick and easy strip-applique method and the little gingerbread fellow comes with buttons or a waistcoat.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
