Waste Free Celebrations

Sew Your Own Native Mistletoe Re-Crackers


In this Sew Your Own pack you will receive:

  • Large storage box
  • Pre-cut fabric for eight Re-Crackers (eight thin and eight fat pieces)
  • 16 pieces of ribbon
  • 8 'Handmade by me" tags
  • 1 spool of 100% recycled Gutterman thread. 
  • 16 custom-made tubes (eight thin and eight fat)
  • Instructions

These crackers are easy to sew but you will need a sewing machine: they cannot be done by hand. We recommend using an overlocker but you can also zig-zag the raw edges if you don't have one. As a last resort, you can also use pinking shears on the raw edges although you will need to be prepared for the "frayed" look as the years go by and the sleeves go in and out of the wash. 

You also need to be able to sew an accurate 8mm seam so if you're teaching a child to sew, they may need assistance at this point. If it's 10mm you won't get the sleeve onto the tube and if it's 6mm it will be all baggy and wrinkled. 

You also need strong hands to pull the sleeves onto the tubes so if the arthritis is playing up, get someone else to pull the sleeves on. 

We recommend purchasing with the filler pack for the total Re-Cracker experience.

Christmas crackers-sew your own

Good quality fabric, easy to follow instructions, looking forward to using them Christmas Day

Perfect keepsake

Beautiful kiwiana print. The kit had everything prepared and made it super easy. They look great and enjoyed as a pre Christmas sewing project. More closeup shots in the instruction video would be helpful :-)
