I put this guy together recently. I am thinking all things 'Nutcracker' lately. I am chair of my church's Cup of Christmas Tea and this year's theme is "The Nutcracker".
The pattern is from 'Patchabilities'. Check out the face. The eyes, nose and mustache are buttons!
I used gold glitter fabric paint on his crown and accessories to sparkle him up a bit. Lesson learned (I learn something on everything I make): When using white for applique, line it first, so you don't get see through!
