The gingerbread man and snowman dolls are very easy to make! They come in two sizes. The small dolls are 11” tall by 10” across with arms outspread. The large dolls are 17” tall by 14” across with arms outspread. You can make either size with or without the pockets.

The small doll pocket can hold candy canes, treats, money or gift cards. The large doll pocket can hold even bigger surprises.

Your favorite little boys and girls will love carrying these sweet dolls around. They are perfect for little hands to hold. The eyes are embroidered and there aren’t any attached embellishments which make them safe for babies – as long as you remove the ribbon bows (although, babies should always be watched carefully with toys). Dolls are made from fleece which makes them soft and cuddly.

This PDF e-pattern includes full size patterns, a materials list, detailed instructions written in English, and clear step-by-step photographs.

Just finished making 4 gingerbread men. I plan on putting them on top of my grandchildren's gifts with extra gift in pocket. Super easy to make, and they came out adorable. Will make snowmen next year.......
