Instructions

Step One

Using the pattern provided, cut out two pieces of felt for each Embroidered Easter Egg you would like to create.

Step Two

Use the Sizzix® die cut machine and dies of your choice to cut out flowers, leaves and other trim. An alternative to using a die cut machine and dies is to free hand cut flower petals or look for images suitable on the internet and create your own patterns.

Step Three

Pin the leaves/flowers and trim to the front of one of the pieces of felt cut earlier. Using a needle and a length of embroidery floss, attach the felt pieces to the egg front with the embroidery stitches of your choice.

Step Four

Once the embroidery is complete; layer the second piece of felt on the back of the embroidered piece and pin the two layers together. Using the needle and embroidery floss; blanket stitch around the outside edge of the egg shape, starting at the bottom edge and working towards the center top. Before stitching the top closed, fold the ribbon in half and insert between the layers of felt. Continue stitching until only a 1 inch space remains. Fill the egg shape with fibre fill until it is stuffed to your liking. Finish stitching the egg shape closed.
