Bespoke Gingerbread Folk
Gingerbread Folk are felt characters designed to represent real people, couples or families. You can choose an accessory or two that reflects someone special's hobbies, interests or job and together we will come up with a design that can be sewn into a unique gift. I love the challenge of sewing tiny, detailed accessories and look forward to hearing your ideas.
My first Gingerbread Folk commission was for Christmas 2010, when a customer asked if I could create a felt Gingerbread family to hang on her Christmas tree. Today they are given as gifts for all occasions !
More examples appear on the Facebook page. The gingerbread men and ladies are 11cm (4 1/4 inches) high, not including the hanging ribbon. If part of a family group, the children are slightly smaller (depending on their age). If the commission is for a gingerbread child on its own, then it will be full-size (11cm).
Prices begin at £30 per character, depending on the degree of detail.
To place an order or for more information, please contact me with an outline of your ideas and I will reply with a quote. Once you have confirmed your order and full payment has been received I will begin your commission and keep you updated with photos to show progress.
