This cute little needlepoint nutcracker ornament, complete with its touch of glittering metallic thread , is not only easy to make, but it is kid- and pet-proof and washable. It also allows you to use up those scraps of worsted weight yarn which you have been saving. It can also be made as a magnet.
If you like the idea, visit my shop for more patterns which I have designed in this series, including tree toppers. You can needlepoint everything which you need to decorate your entire Christmas tree.

I started knitting at age 8 and learned all the rest as I went along - crocheting, sewing, tatting, latch hook, macrame, quilting, needlepoint, leather work, and woodworking. I became a professional seamstress and got into quilting big-time. These days, I mostly concentrate on knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, quilting, and woodworking. I began doing my own designing when I was laid up in a full leg cast. Since then, I have created over 200 of my own designs in various mediums, the patterns for which I sell everywhere and anywhere. I decided to sell my patterns individually, since I hate to have to buy an entire book to get the one or two that I want.
I do sell some hand-made items from my own designs, including woodworking items made by myself, at:
