Brayden plays snare drum and the percussion uniforms are quite different from the rest of the band. I was able to use the same basic body type from Mariah's ornament and just make some basic changes to the uniform and the arm positions. (Yes -- you can have this pattern.)
I thought toothpicks would be a little too small scale-wise, so I bought the tiniest dowel rod I could find in the Walmart craft department. The drummers wrap their sticks with colored electrical tape and everyone chooses their own design. I had Brayden draw me a picture of what his look like so I could duplicate them. He turned out great!
I didn't bother stitching the "WH" on the chest because I knew the snare drum harness would cover it up. I was worried about the beret looking like a blob, but I think it looks okay. I was also concerned as I was stitching that Brayden's ornament was bigger than Mariah's, but once I got them done I could see that it was perfect.
I can't wait to see these on the tree this year. I know if I post a picture of these on Facebook, I'll be hit with a million requests for orders. My answer will be, as always, "You can't afford it!"
