Title: DIY Easter-Egg-Warmer with Tute
Post by: Schlörte on April 01, 2012 07:19:16 AM
A new Easter decoration is needed! This year I decided to do eggs-warmers.
These are not only practical but decorative too! ;-)



You need:

- Large fabric scraps
- Remains of batting
- Bias Tape
- Scissors
- Sewing Machine



First, the ears:



Take a piece of fabric folded right sides together. Draw some Ears on it.
(Draw them not too small, otherwise you cannot contact them later.)
Sew the ears an cut them out.
Turn them and sew around narrowly edged.



Take a large piece of fabric an draw the shape of a large archway.
Take another piece of fabric and cut in in the same form.
Place both on a piece of batting and sew along the edge.
Cut it out.



Set the ears high on one side of the fabric and sew close to edge.



Border the lower sides of the two pieces of fabric with bias tape.



Then put both pieces right sides together and sew. Preferably with a serger.
(Or sew with a zigzag stitch.)



Now turn the Egg-Warmer and sew along the edges.



Done. :-)
