Start by tracing the shape of a gingerbread man to a piece of paper. You can copy one from the computer screen, or draw freehand. Cut it and use as a stencil.

Using the paper stencil, cut two identical gingerbread shapes out of felt. On one of them, stitch white beads as buttons. Then use the white thread to stitch eyes and a smile, and more decorations as you please (I made cuffs). Glue or stitch a loop of white thread at the head, on the wrong side of the fabric, to be used for hanging.

Finally, stitch the two sides together with brown thread, using a blanket stitch. If you hate sewing, you can also glue the two sides together, just make sure it’s stable.
