 Easter Eggs: How do your make yours? Fabric Tastic

On Monday, I showcased some crocheted  

Easter Eggs

I had designed.

But they didn’t really do it for me,

so

I dumped them sharpish.

(all four of them)

Amy Butler Love Range Fabric

This left me close to

breaking the promise

 I made with myself;

 

to make some Easter Eggs (in time for Easter).

Of course, I could have ignored my promise,

just like

last year & the year before,

but…

Easter without eggs

is just wrong!


Fabric Strips

 

  So I had a think.

You can’t beat thinking.


  Mod Podge

 Another thing you can’t beat is

Mod Podge.

If you know how to use it.

Word to the wise,

use thin layers.

Tempting as it is to slap it on all over the place,

you will spend your afternoon peeling it off your desk,

fingers, and out of your hair.

 Trust me on this one.

  Styrofoam Egg

Anyway,

this particular Easter Egg project

is very easy to make.

All you need is

Styrofoam eggs,

fabric cut into oval slivers (4 per egg)*

glue,

and some trimmings.

* You could also use fabric strips, but I wasn’t very successful with strips.

 
 
Easter Eggs & Crochet Cotton

 For the trimmings,

I simply chained (crochet) some long strips

& glued them onto the fabric seams.

Easy az!

To finish you can  

add hanging threads,

but

I chose to pop my eggs into my

bird nest bowl.

    How large were the ovals?

      That’s a good question. I don’t have any notes other than the ones on the blogpost (6 years ago), but I think I used some string to measure the dimensions of the foam eggs and drew up an oval from that, and then used scrap fabric to test the sizing.
