More about the Gingerbread Boy!
I made the Gingerbread boy with my tat lassies...tho only two were brave enough to try him..after I had explained all the pitfalls...and hopefully jumped over them!
Today they came back!!!
Jackie had made hers in my Gingerbread in Lizbeth 40..
and he is DIVINE!
Remember that I said that this was the one that I had hope would be my 'piece de resistance', but that he didn't turn out well.
here is my one and Jackie's one side by side.
Look how much smaller he is...it's amazing.
I was so sickened by my result that I had decided that my Gingerbread thread was best used in small doses, along with my other Spice threads as it just looked too busy......but in the smaller size and done well!! it looks wonderful and not at all 'busy'.
The way that she has done the icing..similar to my last attempt looks so good.
He is so cute and shows the thread off to perfection.
he really does look good enough to eat...and he makes mine look even worse!
I almost have to tat him again!
The other Gingerbread man also came in with Carmel but he isn't finished yet.
we all thought that he was so cute that we almost said....
Don't change him, he is perfect as he is.
Doesn't he look different
very Teddy Bearish and furry.....and very surprised...maybe because she had discovered a discrepancy in the pattern....the instructions give 12 rings in the head and the photo shows only 11!
Jackie and I tatted 12 but Carmel went with 11 which makes his eyes closer together and I think makes him look more surprised,
