Here is the third applique from the December Applique Blocks Collection. As always, the Gingerbread Star Applique was designed to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block, but it can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. Since I designed this, I was thinking they would be so cute to reduce and turn into earrings. Of course, you don’t need to make them gingerbread cookies, you can use any color you like.
