NutCracker Ballerina

No Monday Morning Savings today....find ongoing Black Friday Cyber Monday Sales Here and Here

I had to share....

I saw the cutest NutCracker pattern on IG from @Aqua_Paisley the other week, and I wasn't the only one who loved it, because she put out a cutting info sheet for all of us who asked!!!

I got busy right away and downloaded the free info sheet and chain pieced three that same day!!! They are just so cute.

It got me thinking....I've been wanting to make new Christmas Stockings....and figured I would add the nutcrackers to my sons' and husband's but what about us I was inspired to tweak the original pattern and come up with a Ballerina Princess!

and with Samantha's permission, because let's face it this is her pattern, just tweaked......

Directions for sewing the paper pieced pattern together:

C + E
F + D


And don't forget you have one more day to link up a picture of at least one of the November blocks from the One Block Wonders BOM to be eligable  for this months prize!! Good Luck!!


  1. These are cute! These will look great as Christmas Stockings. Love how you tweaked to make ballerina ones.

  2. Very cute. I like your inspiration to modify for girls!

  3. What a fabulous idea!!! Off to make 4 - 2 of each!! Thank you so much for the pattern!

  4. These are so great! What a fun change to my Christmas decorations! Thank you so much!

  5. Thanks very much for sharing your pattern, and for pointing us in the direction of the nutcracker that started it all.
