Sew Cute: Easter Eggs

Easter is just around the corner! There are so many fun traditions associated with the holiday: big family get-togethers, lots of good food and, of course, Easter egg hunts. I have wonderful memories of finding those brightly colored plastic eggs tucked behind the couch or hidden in a flowerbed, and opening them up to find little sweets and treats.

This year, I thought I would make fabric versions of the classic Easter egg. I ended up with a half-dozen little guys that act as small pockets for your holiday goodies. For the fabric, I used a mixture of patterned and colored felt to imitate the look of dyed eggs. I even found some glittery felt, which is pretty much a perfect thing. It does tend to cover the workspace with sparkles, though, which is one of those problems that sort of isn’t a problem. If you use it, just be prepared to be extra dazzling for a while!


 

Materials:

  • Colorful felt
  • Thread in a complementary color to the felt (you can use the same thread for all of the eggs if you want—no one will mind!)
  • Basic sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Measuring tape
  • Piece of paper
  • Ballpoint pen
  • Straight pins
  • Optional: sewing machine

Craft away:

  • Draw a half-oval shape onto the paper, 3-inches wide by 2 1/4-inches tall, and cut it out. 

  • Trace the template four times onto each piece of felt, and cut all of the pieces out.
