Crocheting Nutcracker Figurine Pattern - DIY Christmas Gift

$ 4.99
Every year I make or buy a Christmas nutcracker to represent a significant event in our lives that year. This year I made myself a crocheting nutcracker and wrote the directions for all collectors of nutcrackers and lovers of crochet. Flex your crafting skills by turning a raw wooden nutcracker into this beautiful keepsake to decorate your home. The wooden nutcracker is painted and embellished with black fuzzy slippers, white faux fur cuffs on her shirt, a crocheted hat with pompom, and a gold (tone) ribbon necklace. She is holding a crochet hook with her latest project - a scarf to match her hat.

The nutcracker measures approximately 13" tall by 4" wide by 4" deep. Makes a great gift for any crocheter on your list.
