The Owl Cracker has been finished into a cracker - one not to be opened for prizes inside, however!
Here is how it looked on my last update of April 19, 2021.
Here is the finished product.
I have done round finishing before, so this was not too bad, but I usually wrap it around a toilet paper roll tube to give it stability and a nice round shape. I did not have one readily available, so it was done "free hand". Not as perfectly round as would be with the tube, but I am happy with it.
As fate would have it a friend had a small (under 10) socially distanced Stampin' UP! party and her party favor included some pieces of ribbon. One of which was perfect for this cracker!!
I also finished the Celebrate Harvest piece into a pillow. I lined it and the filled it with crushed walnut shells. I still need to decide on an edging. I can easily sew it on once I find something I like. For now the edges are bare.
I used the special fabric that is a reproduction of of a page from William Bradford's journal which documented the first 30 years of the Plymouth Colony.
Love the projects. I never thought of using a toilet paper tube when making one of these...thank you for the idea.
