- Sewing machine
- Pencil or knitting needle
- Needle and thread
- Hot glue gun
- Easter basket
- Assorted fabrics (optional)
Trace and cut fabric
Use a template to draw an egg-shaped oval on the back of fabric with a pen. Repeat this shape 4 more times and then cut them out of the fabric with your scissors.
Sew two sides together
With the external sides of the fabric facing each other, use your sewing machine to sew 2 sides of 2 pieces together, about a quarter of an inch from the edge.
Repeat with the other sides
Repeat the same process with the other two sides and then sew the two halves together, external sides facing. Leave a 1-inch-hole at the top to turn the right sides out.
Stuff with batting
Stuff the egg with cotton or polyester batting using a pencil or a knitting needle. Work the batting around to make the egg as smooth as possible.
Close up the egg
Hand sew the opening in the egg closed with a needle and matching thread.
Stitch or glue on trim
Stitch or glue decorative trim onto the egg with either a hot glue gun or a needle and thread to finish up your first fabric egg. Then make some more, and load your eggs into an Easter basket for a long-lasting decoration.
