music to sew by...  Wink

how about a small ruler, like a 6" one (sometimes easier to measure with than a tape, like for hems and stuff)

marking pencil or chalk

bubba*tink- Your eggs are fantastic! When I showed up to my mom's for Easter yesterday, she had dyed a few eggs and wrapped correction tape around them to get the patterns. She would definitely love your eggs. I might have to go home a day early next year so we can try out a bunch of different methods.

peihan17 and mirela- Thanks for the tips! Now I feel less discouraged and will be trying this again. I'm going to work with blown eggs, though because I feel like I wasted a whole bunch of boiled eggs, especially when they cracked (and I didn't want to eat eggs that had beet juice on them...beets= gross!).

I think it looks exactly like Lightning McQueen (and I'm way older than a 3 year old Wink )! I love how the headlights look like they are actually on! Nicely done!

Thanks for sharing this idea and posting such helpful pics on your website! I have a party to go to on Saturday and wanted to make something easy as part of the gift (it seems like sacrilege if I don't include something handmade).

I think I have some felt kicking around here, and it's worth a try! Instead of plastic, I may cheat and use some fusible interfacing. If I iron a piece onto each piece of felt, it might be enough to give it some shape.

If I manage to get one done in time, I'll post a pic!

These are cute! How do you get them to stay coiled like that? I'd like to make a couple of these for my classroom, especially in the colors of the coral snake and the one that looks similar but isn't poisonous.

As a practice run, I tried boiling the eggs without the nylons and flowers/leaves.

I found that the dark color from the onion skins rubbed off. Some of the color actually scraped off as I was taking them out of the pot. So, I scrubbed it off and it still left a nice lighter color underneath, but not as cool as the dark color was. Should I have done something to keep that from happening?

The turmeric also left a "film" on the eggs, which I washed off. They still came out a nice color yellow.

I did beets and purple cabbage, too, but they came out very pale.

I added vinegar to the water, but didn't let them sit overnight (I needed the space that the bowls were taking up, so I had to take them out after a couple of hours). I might try this again, but I'm not sure...if I can get better results, then it's a keeper.

LOL! These are great! My family would be a it shocked (but after a moment, not really surprised), to see this in the basket.

Nothing like taking a tradition a bit our of the box  Wink

Love the skull apron and oven mitt! And the sign is fabulous!

It's funny, I never thought about American measuring cups vs non-American measuring cups! I have a couple of recipe books (not that I cook Cheesy ) that I've picked up on my travels and they have grams and milliliters. As a science geek, I think I just converted without thinking about it! But metric measuring cups would have made things easier...
