The Nutcracker Cross Stitch Pattern - Digital PDF

This modern cross stitch pattern is a whimsical take on the beloved classic holiday tale of The Nutcracker, featuring an ever-growing Christmas tree, the nefarious Rat King, the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy, and of course, the heroic Nutcracker Prince himself. I designed it after inspiration from my own childhood memories of going to see The Nutcracker ballet every holiday with my family.

Finished stitched area is 5.1 x 4.4 inches / 12.95 x 11.2 cm on 18 count Aida cloth.
Shown above in a 6 inch hoop.
