I made some of these using felted sweaters and I like them but not everybody has a stash of that so here is another version using regular old woven fabric.

I didn't have any candy in the studio so this one is filled with eyeball beads because whatever, ha!


I drafted a pattern for the egg on printer paper so I could fold it in half to make it even, I marked orientation lines on it then traced everything onto a cardboard template which you see here. I cut 2 pieces of fabric large enough for the egg shape and then 2 more piece of fabric folded in half and just a bit smaller than the egg. Can you see how one is larger than the other? It will make sense in a few steps. Read through the entire tutorial and if you are still confused please let me know and I will clarify anything that's hazy.


Place the 2 pieces of fabric large enough for the egg right sides together, center the template with room for a seam allowance all the way around and trace the inner circle. Sew along that line, cut away the inner fabric and clip the curve all the way around.


I'll show this part in 2 steps. Pull the top fabric through the hole like so...


until you've turned it right sides out. Press everything flat with a hot iron.


I added some trim here and pinned a piece of blue tulle to the back, it's a bit difficult to see.. You can also use netting or clear plastic for this step. See the tutorial linked at the start of this topic for advice on sewing plastic. Sew around the circle to secure the tulle then trim the tulle on the inside.


Now place the larger folded piece of fabric on top of that with the fold at the top. The smaller piece goes next with the fold at the bottom. Overlap those pieces about 1/2 inch. I found the ribbon trim very helpful here for orientation. Then I used a fingernail to press an outline of the circle in the bottom piece of fabric.


Using the orientation marks on the template to position it, lay it evenly on the fabric and trace the outline. If you want to add a ribbon for hanging now's the time. Pin everything together, sew around the outline, trim close to the stitching line and turn the egg right side out.


Carefully press the edges on the back of the egg taking care not to melt any trim, plastic, netting etc on the front.
Edge stitch around the outside of the egg.


I made a rainbow profusion but I can't share them until tomorrow Wink.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

These are so clever and such a good idea for stash busting.

Every bit of the ones I made are from stash! You could easily make a patchwork/crazy quilt version to use up smaller bits too. In fact, I think I'll try that next...

Eyeball beads, tee hee. Knowing my children they'd probably enjoy a treat bag full of those  Roll Eyes.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
