Wow! You ladies had some FAB ideas for guesses! I especially loved the petal apron idea. Seriously, how cute would THAT be? I'm working on that as soon as I have a minute to play!! And two ladies DID guess right. I suppose I'm not too good at being sneaky. LOL Hollie and Anna Maria knew just what I had up my sleeve: Fun little stuffed patchwork Easter eggs!
So fun, right?! My kids LOOOOVE them. And I think they're quite adorable too. Thanks to Miss Heather Bailey's gorgeous fabrics that work so perfectly for spring time projects. So I worked up a little pattern if you'd like to make some for yourself. Please forgive my weak pattern attempts....I'm no good at drawing in Photoshop....and even worse at writing instructions. Anyhow, here's how you do it.
To use this pattern, click on the image to make it larger. Save the full sized file to your computer and scale it to whatever size you want, then print it out. The pattern I used to make the eggs pictured above was 6 inches in length, if that helps at all. :) I know, clear as mud, right?
Anyhow, I'd really love to see pics if you're inspired to make any little stuffed eggs. I do kindly ask that you don't sell anything made using this pattern, but feel free to use it for your own personal use. I can think of so many fun possibilities: Egg ornaments for a fun feather tree, vintage chenille eggs, felt, embellied with ribbons and all sorts of fancy things....
Okay, friends, off to do a little shopping and birthday cake planning. It's *Henry's* birthday tomorrow so we've got a busy weekend full of celebrations.
All the best~
