Those are gorgeous! I think yours are way better looking than mine. I love the patterned fabric.

I went and bought some of the egg shaped balls but haven't used them yet. Issue: the cost of 2 eggs is the same as 6 rounds. Yikes!

How pretty! I like the red sparkly one Smiley! They look lovely in the basket like that.

How long would you guys say it takes to make one?

Thanks..but I had you to make all the mistakes for me... Grin!

I know!!!  I could not believe how much the egg shaped ones were!! It was $3.99 for two at Joann's..but I do have a coupon for 40% off...

Lime--it takes a lot of pins, too...cutting the strips was the easiest---the first one was hard just because you had to get into a rhythm...it took me two sitcoms to do one...but that was pausing, getting something to eat, etc....maybe half an hour each?

I would say it takes more than an hour for me but that's including the cutting. I don't usually look at the clock and I've been known to be pretty slow with stuff too so for you it probably would be closer to her estimate.

I used my rotary cutter and cut all four out at once...I am going to make the egg ones (yes, I ended up buying egg shaped cones at lunch...)...I will time it, sort of...I have to squeeze in laundry and cookie making as well...

if you look on ebay you can get the egg shapes for alot cheaper. I got 10 for 2.50 with including postage.. which issss.. just under $4 (USA) so shop around. I unfortunatly didnt get time to make any of these due to spending nearly 3 weeks in hospital over christmas, hopefully I will get some done next christmas.

I caved and bought the egg shaped forms...they are a lot bigger and once you are done, they are heavy!!  I hung two on my curtains and will post a pic...I actually like the round ones better... Cheesy

I am using the remaining forms to make autumnal ones that I can use all year...they are a bit addicting as I watch TV!

these are lovely, and as they're pinned rather than glued, a slightly larger one would make a lovely gift for a quilter.
