From the Scrap Lab: Experiment #1 Fabric Eggs - Free Pattern!


Remember when I said I was gonna have a make-fest out of my scrap box? Well, this was experiment #1. I have been thinking about fabric eggs, actually eggs in general, a lot lately. So I conjured up a pattern and commenced to sewing some up. I thought I would share this pattern with you all. What better timing with Easter hopping down the bunny trail? I didn't quite make it to the pdf so, just click on the picture below and print the page. You can enlarge as you see fit but, this should be pretty close to the original size.



Funny thing about this is, after I did all the work with the pattern and then the sewing up and the instructions (and was rather pleased with myself), it finally occurred to me to look up such a thing on the www. Turns out there are a couple of similar eggy things floating about. Not eggsactly (groan) the same though, so feel free to whip some up.

More experiments are on the way!

Edited: I fixed the instructions a little, they still aren't very detailed but at least they have less typos. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks

Brings back memories of when hose came in the leggs containers. One Easter a friend and I cut sections of fabric and glued them to the plastic eggs. I still have them for my Easter basket decorations!

Adorable! I wonder why you are thinking about eggs....oh, I know! You want some hens! So you can have fresh, home laid eggs! And your girl would have such fun collecting them!

Yes Claire, you have found me out! I do want hens. In fact, a chicken coop is in the design phase right now. We shall see :]
