Nutcracker Amigos
 Applique' Wall Hanging Pattern

Four Nutcracker 'Amigos' make up this western style wall hanging. A pretty Cowgirl, a rootin' tootin' Sheriff, a ropin' Ranch Hand, and a saddle carryin' Bronco Buster.

We sewed the Nutcracker Amigos onto a wall hanging using bandana print borders and satin-stitched western ranch brands. The inner border has 36 authentic western brands; while the outer border has a machine sewn 'barbed-wire' stitch. Wall Hanging Sewing Skill Level 3.
