Sew Felt Easter Eggs

felt-egg-trio

Stitch these sweet little felt eggs, filled with wool batting, and hang them up for Easter! Wool felt is an excellent fabric for kids to practice sewing on; it’s thick and sturdy, and it doesn’t unravel at the edges. It’s also forgiving if you make a mistake and need to take out some stitches. Our Easter Felt Set contains enough felt to make three or four eggs in each spring-bright color.

Materials: Pastel Felt Set, Wool Batting, embroidery floss, scissors, a needle and a Felt Egg Template (or feel free to make your own!)

Print the template and cut out the egg shape. Place it on the felt and trace around it with a pencil. Then cut out the shapes—you’ll need two to make an egg.

felt-egg-stitches

Decorate your egg! Running stitches make great stripes, long stitches are an easy way to do zig-zags, and short vertical stitches or small x’s can be polka dots. Have fun mixing up your colors and stitches!

Place your eggs on top of each other, with the decorated side facing out. Using a simple running stitch, stitch around the egg near the edge, but don’t go all the way around. Stop when you’re about an inch and a half from where you started. Stuff the egg with wool batting, then continue to sew the rest of the egg.

Sew a strip of felt or a piece of floss to the top of your egg, and hang it up!
