Nutcracker Sweet Cross Stitch Kit


My little girl is going to a new ballet school this year, and they do The Nutcracker every December. Normally we see it in the big, fancy theater downtown, but I think that no matter where you can catch a performance or how small the dancers, it is always just a magical part of the holiday season.

This piece is stitched on 32-count linen (that's 16 stitches per inch) with two-plies of DMC six-ply cotton embroidery floss.

Finished size of design area: 6"w x 8"h (15cm x 20cm); 98 stitches wide x 130 high on 32-count fabric

This kit contains:
  • One 14" x 16" (36cm x 41cm) piece of 32-count evenweave linen from Zweigart in Blush
  • (46) 24" (61cm) lengths of various colors of DMC 6-ply cotton embroidery floss
  • Stitching instructions
  • Color cross-stitch chart with symbols
  • One piece of chipboard for creating a floss organizer
