Stitch 'Em Up - Applique a Story in Fabric - Nutcracker Patterns
Nutcracker Suite Applique' Pattern

A Trio of Nutcracker Kings stitced on individual portrait-style wall hangings. Aren't they simply wonderful! We used brocade, moire' taffetas, satins, silver and gold lame'. Lots of hand beading, decorative machine stitches, and fancy jewels really make our Nutcracker Kings stand out.

You may create your Nutcracker Suite as we did as three separate wall hangings, combine them on one, or sew them on to a velvet Christmas stocking, holiday pillow or garment. Applique Sewing Skill Level 3.
