I am referring to this collection as “Patti’s Army”. The 12-Days of Christmas Nutcrackers are designed by Susan Roberts. Patti really went after her thread stash to create these darling characters (a great place to use up those odds and ends of threads). To create continuity among the collection, she choose a slightly contrasting over dyed floss in creams and white for all of the backgrounds. We backed each nutcracker in a black velveteen and solid gold cording for trim, each soldier is about 8″ tall.
