Easter is less than 40 days away you know. YIKES!
I saw these cute fabric eggs from Retro Mama via Bindi's Blog.
I thought they are so adorable I must try. Perfect timing as my sewing machine is broken (currently getting a service). Perfect timing 'cause these little babies are hand sewn. I don't think I have hand sewn anything in my life! (apart from applique)
The first one took the longest (as always) and a few turned out less like eggs and more like balls, but the girls didn't mind as I let them have the not so good looking ones to play with. I used 2 old dresses (of the girls) to make them. Little scraps of fabric are perfect for these, so I have enough material to make 100's! Which could be good if I decide it would be fun to do an egg hunt with these instead of the chocolate version - I don't know about you , but we always end up with too much chocolate at Easter.
However they were fairly relaxing to make while watching tv, reading blogs etc. And I thought if I start now, I might have a few for display in time for Easter.
They are far from perfect, wiggly stitches, and oddly shaped. But the girls love them.
Perfect for our Easter.
