New Dachshund Reusable Crackers

Having teased you all for quite a while now, we are very excited to share our new Dachshund Reusable Christmas Crackers. Designed especially for the lovely Selina, founder of the Devoted to Dachshunds website ( The site is a heaven for all sausage dog lovers everywhere, and since embarking on this project we can safely say we all want our own four legged sausage friend!

The design process starts with some initial research and sketches of possible ideas. We then make some detailed drawings and recreate the chosen image on the computer, converting it to stitch.

Research and original sketches for the dachshund motifs

Once we had created the first samples on our own embroidery machines, we took them to the Benton & Johnson factory in Bedworth. They have a huge twelve head embroidery machines which meant twelve crackers could be embroidered at once. We were absolutely fascinated when the machines were in motion, but please excuse the rookie mistake of incorrect camera rotation!

Each cracker was then pressed, crimped and tied. We then added one of our brand new swing tags and boxed them up ready to be sent to their new home.
