I started by just strip piecing various width strips of coordinating fabrics. Then I fused it down onto some Timtex.
I added some rickrack, buttons and ribbons to the strips.
I made a pattern of an egg and traced it onto the fabric and cut it out. I then satin stitched the edge with a coordinating rayon thread.
I put the egg onto some craft felt and stitched around most of the egg. I left the top open so you can put in a little something. Then I trimmed it with a decorative blade - or you could use pinking shears.
Finally, I used some 19 gauge black craft wire and spiraled the ends on a paintbrush handle, bent it into a curve and stitched it on to make a handle. Voila! Quick, easy and fun for Easter.
And I had some scraps left over between the eggs so I cut them to ATC size so I have several bases for trading cards in the future.
