The creative people at Mill Hill have put their talent to work designing patterns of many of the characters from The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker Ballet is a well-loved Christmas tradition, and Herr Drosselmeyer is one of the best-remembered characters. I stitched the magical clock & toymaker in three separate pieces on antique brown perforated paper. I used nine colors of floss and five colors of beads - gold, crystal, royal plum, black, and green velvet. After completing all the stitching and beadwork, I trimmed away any excess paper and assembled Herr Drosselmeyer, attaching his legs to his upper body and his hat to his hand. The finishing touch was the addition of the tiny matte autumn topaz four petal flower that adorns his hat. The finished piece measures approximately 3.75" x 4" (9.53cm x 10.1cm), and will sparkle and shine on your Christmas tree. It would also make a great gift for a ballet-loving friend or relative!
