Step 1 - Trace the parts out for your Felt Easter Egg

Step 2 “Take one of your egg pieces and with your coordinating cotton thread sew a running stitch along the zig zag edges only of the top and bottom piece, through both layers.

Step 2 - sew felt pieces together for your Felt Easter Egg

Step 3 “ Sew your buttons into position.  You could alternatively sew a piece of ribbon through the centre or use bias to decorate your egg.

Step 4 “ Take the ribbon and fold in half.  With the second egg piece place the folded ribbon into the centre at the top and sew into place with cotton thread.

Step 4 - attach Ribbon to your Felt Easter Egg

Step  5 “ Place your front and back egg pieces together (with the ribbon in between the layers).  Sew around the outside of your egg, using running stitch with your co-ordinating cotton thread through the two layers.

Step 5 - Sew together your Felt Easter Egg

Step 6 “ Stop about 2cm before the place where you started and stuff your egg using the toy filling.  Sew the gap closed.

Step 6 - stuffing your felt Easter Egg

Your Felt Easter Egg all completed
