Gingerbread Toy Shop

Share it!   


If you’re looking for gingerbread house inspiration, I can’t tell you how awesome Teresa Layman’s books are.  I’ve only mentioned her a kazillion times already.

I copied her Gingerbread Toy Shop back in 2003 and ended up raffling it off at the school I work at.

Our principal won it.  Fair and square – really it wasn’t rigged!

This post has to be short and sweet – Off to finish some Christmas cookies!

    @ Lisa:
    No problem. Click on the the link above (Teresa Layman), and it will show you the book I got it from. I’m sorry I can’t physically share the pattern due to copyright.
