I love the nutcracker soldiers. They are inevitable part of my Christmas scenery which I put up every year on my living room dresser and there is something deep inside of me that ignites whenever I see a nutcracker soldier :)
So, as it happened, I came across this idea on pinterest where a lady has worked a knit scarf to look like a soldier by putting googly eyes and strands of yarn to imitate hair, and when I saw it, I thought why not making it look more like a soldier in a uniform and a hat and everything one can think of to make it as identical as possible. And Voila! Here's my take of it. I worked it on my whims and I love it!
Now, when it's done, I am thinking of redoing the hair, adding black pupils on the eyes, redoing the golden part on the hat and eventually adding something golden to the uniform (buttons perhaps?).
Also, I am thinking of making him a friend but this time in navy blue and golden...
