Scary Apothecary – Finishing Template
Thank you for stitching this spooky, silly & sparkly Halloween series! I’ve provided a template (see link below) which is the exact size that was used in the pictured finishes. You just need to grab some matboard, cardboard, batting, ribbon & all of those extra little bits to fully-finish your series!
Please follow my other Flat-Finishing tutorials for guidance on setting up your cut boards, lacing & stitching front to back. Print out this page & adjust as necessary so that the dimensions of the template measure what it should.
I chose to use ribbon for a hanger & add a secondary bow—it’s put in place with a coordinating ball head pin. I chose a fun woolfelt ball for the bottom—I found mine at a variety of Etsy shops. That is also help in place with a pin, this time with a good old straight pin.
You will need to cut 18 pattern pieces in all to complete all 9 ornaments. I would trace this onto a piece of cardboard & cut to use as a template. This will make your tracing more consistent.

Added bonus! I offered a complimentary design at Nashville market. Favorite Brew was designed with the colors that I used throughout the series – even some of the Scary Sparkle! Print yours here: favorite brew
Have fun finishing & be sure to show your finishes using the hashtag— #scaryapothecary.
Enjoy the stitch,
