Finishing
There is no need to weave in ends, you can simply tuck them inside the cauldron before you stuff it.

Take one end of the handle in your hand.

Take each tail end of the side of the handle that you are holding and thread them through the fold where the lip of the cauldron begins, placing one tail on each side of a sc.

Tie the in a knot on the inside of the cauldron.

Repeat the process for the other end of the handle directly across from the first handle attachment.

With black yarn and the yarn needle stitch up and down to pin the lip to the cauldron. Try to stay near the inside edge so that the outside edge of the lip still sticks out a little.

Author's Note: If you don’t do this step and then you stuff it the lip sticks up like flower petals, instead of like the edge of a cauldron.

Place the potion where you want it inside the cauldron.

With yet more black yarn and the yarn needle sew down through the inside edge of both the cauldron and the potion edge.

Now sew up through the next stitch in the potion and up through the cauldron lip, pulling snug. The potion edge should tuck up under the cauldron lip so that you cant see the stitches.

Work your way around the potion in this manner until there is only a small gap left.

Stuff the cauldron as firmly as you can with the fiber fill.

Finish stitching in the potion.

Squish the cauldron around until to looks like it’s the right shape.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
