Christmas Mouse Nutcracker & Doll Pattern©

"Christmas Mouse Nutcracker & Doll Pattern© "
 By Connie Hughes Designs©
I just finished this Christmas Mouse Nutcracker...
When I started him I wanted him to stand up on a base like
a real nutcracker...so I worked and reworked him
and I finally got him to stand...so he now stands about
19" tall...and he really stands on his own...yay!

Everybody dreams of a Nutcracker at least once a year
We have memories in our hearts, we hold so dear
I'm that perfect fella, see how easy I get along
and if you decide to make me you won't go wrong
I'm brave and proud even when I stand alone
I'm just a little Nut who's looking for a home

If you can find it in your heart or if you need a reason
let me remind you Christmas is Nutcracker season!
 So while your turkey dinner is digesting, get your
crochet hook out while resting!
The Pattern is Available at Connie's Spot© Shop or the link below:

I hope you enjoy this little Nutcracker as much as I did making him!
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
I thank you all for supporting Connie’s Spot©
 I’m looking forward to many new Designs in 2015!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!
