Assembly: Weave in all ends on the legs and arms and trim them. Now hold both the front and back of your gingerbread man together (make sure the neat edges where you single crocheted around the entire body are facing out on both sides), using a needle sew both pieces together, be sure to stuff your gingerbread man as you are sewing him closed. Now sew on the gumdrops, bow, and white trim. Using black thread sew on a mouth and eyebrows. That’s it, you now have your very own soft and sweet little gingerbread man!
