- Scraps of felt in white, yellow, orange, brown pink and green for the decorations
- Handful of toy filler
- 4 x 6” strips of ribbon
- 4 small buttons

- Wet fabric glue
- Pinking shears

To make the daffodil decoration, cut out two egg shapes. Cut six yellow petals, then a 4” x ¼” strip of orange felt with pinking shears.
Roll up the orange strip and secure with wet glue. Adhere to the centre off the petals. Sew a stalk with green embroidery thread using a back stitch, then sew a couple of leaves to one side of the stalk.
Fold the ribbon in half and glue to the top back of the egg. Place the two felt egg pieces together and blanket stitch around the edge, leaving a small gap for stuffing. Don’t remove the needle, pop a little toy filler inside, then continue sewing. Add the button to the top of the egg when you’ve finished.
To make the bunny egg, cut two egg shapes, and a 4” x ½” length of white felt and snip into one side to make a fringe. This will make the bob tail.
Cut out three small egg shapes, arrange over one of the large egg shapes, and sew. Try using French knots, running and zig-zag stitches.
Place bunny over the top and sew. Roll up the tail piece and glue to bunny’s bottom.
Add the ribbon as before, blanket stitch around the edge, and stuff as above. Finish off by adding the small button.
I added a lazy daisy stitch to the chick egg, with a little blusher on the cheeks to add character!
The leaves for the tulips overlap the edge of the egg, fold them out of the way when blanket stitching.
You’ll now have four eggs, why not make more, and sew yourself an Easter Egg tree!
