Easter Eggs: How do your make yours? Fabric Tastic
On Monday, I showcased some crocheted
I had designed.
But they didn’t really do it for me,
I dumped them sharpish.
(all four of them)
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,
last year & the year before,
Easter without eggs
is just wrong!
So I had a think.
You can’t beat thinking.
Another thing you can’t beat is
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.
this particular Easter Egg project
is very easy to make.
All you need is
fabric cut into oval slivers (4 per egg)*
and some trimmings.
* You could also use fabric strips, but I wasn’t very successful with strips.
For the trimmings,
I simply chained (crochet) some long strips
& glued them onto the fabric seams.
To finish you can
add hanging threads,
I chose to pop my eggs into my
bird nest bowl.
