I couldn’t help it, I had to make another set of Nutcracker toys for Pipsqueak. The paper ones are fun, but let’s face it – he’s a 4 year old who is going to be rough on paper.
So I created these peg dolls.
Clara, the Nutcracker Prince and Drosselmeyer are based on Pumpkin Girl’s and the cast of Ballet Idaho’s costumes from last year. Clara is a brunette, of course. She always will be, in our house.
Fritz was inspired by Pumpkin Girl’s costume with her ballet company, also from last year.
