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 on 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.

best idea ever

Love the idea of being able to create my own crackers to suit who is there for Xmas year after year. Clean, easy and simple to do.

I found the sew-your-own cracker instructions easy to follow and I loved the finished product. I appreciate that there is a lower cost option to these great crackers. I do have a problem in that there was a mixup in my order and I have received no follow-up to the email I sent. I ordered 2 packs of cracker snaps, and was only sent one.
