Floral Fabric Easter Egg Tutorial Number 2

So here as promised is the second design for a fabulous Easter decoration. This week my inspiration came in the form of the gorgeous, happy, yellow daffodils which are bringing Springtime cheer in our garden at the moment. Love them!

To make this egg you will need:

2 felt egg shapes, (see last week's post for sizing), 15cm ribbon, 1 orange or yellow button, 1 orange felt circle cut with pinking shears slightly larger in size then the button, 1 yellow daffodil shape approx 5cm x 5cm

Step one:

Pin and sew the ribbon across the centre of one of the felt egg shapes wrapping the ribbon around each side to give a neat edge.

Step two:

Place the daffodil shape in the middle of the ribbon, the orange circle in the middle of the daffodil and the button on top of the felt circle. Sew all three together and through the ribbon and felt egg to attach the daffodil to the egg shape.

Step three:

As in last week's tutorial (click here to view) sew around the outside of the egg leaving a small gap on one side, (I have used blanket stitch for this one), add a small amount of stuffing and sew up the gap.

Ta dah! your gorgeous second Easter decoration is now complete. Number 3 to follow next week.
