Wooly Felted Easter Eggs

Several weeks ago I had big plans to get started and finish 5 Wooly Felted Easter Eggs. Well, I managed to get 2 of them completed for Easter and I will attempt to get the remaining 3 completed this week and enjoy them a bit before I pack them away for next Easter. These really are a fun project. I purchased the pattern, wool & kit from Erica's Crafts.

I began with cutting my pattern pieces out of freezer paper. I ironed the freezer paper to the felt and cut out all the parts for 5 Easter eggs. Here are all my cut parts:

Using 505 spray makes it MUCH easier to place your parts onto the portion of the eggs for stitching - it's soooo much easier than pinning them and trying to work around pins.

Once all the parts are 505'ed to the egg portions, it's time to start stitching.

I blanket stitched all the felt applique pieces to the eggs. Once all the egg portions are done, machine stitch together, leaving an opening. Fill with polyfil, then whip-stitch the opening. Using DMC Perle Cotton, feather stitch to hide all the seams. Here are 2 of my completed eggs - they are soooo cute and fun to make! I hope you enjoy seeing them!

When I finish up the rest of them, I will "antique" them by coffee-staining.
