Do you have one collection you continually turn to for projects? I do! One of my favorites is Gingery Christmas because it was designed around projects.

Her pattern, Gingerbread Fun, includes two projects featuring more traditionally appliqued gingerbread men. I substituted the small four gingerbread applique cookie designs from Gingery Christmas and you can see the result below.
