Spring has finally arrived and there are Easter colours are popping up everywhere. There are some exciting projects coming your way from SewKids! I can’t wait to share them all. But for now, I will share an easy project for Easter. I have a special home decor item with a furry hand-feel that you will just love! Stay tuned for that post.
This month is all about creating colorful projects with lots of texture. These felt Easter Egg Ornaments make for a simple project that is perfect for all skill levels.
If you are a beginner and would like to learn some basic hand sewing stitches, I recommend that you check out our Hand Sewing For Beginners Video series on our SewKids! TV Youtube channel. The series covers the basics that you will need to complete this project. You may also want to try stitching up several simple projects. Here are some easy patterns to get started with. If you are looking for more Easter projects, check out our Easter Pattern Bundle.

What you will need:
-Felt fabric in various Easter colours
-SewKids! pattern and project guide
For the felt fabric, try choosing a variety of colours. Mix and match them to make exciting combinations. I would recommend using a felt between 1/8″ or 1/4″ thickness.
Use contrasting embroidery floss in order to make the stitching pop. I really love taking it one step further and using multi-coloured or space dyed yarns. Most kids really enjoy using a rainbow scheme.
Be sure to use a needle with a larger enough eye to accommodate the embroidery thread. If you find that it is difficult to thread the needle, you can peel away a few layers of the yarn in order to thin it out. It will still work fine but it will be more manageable.
You will need a small amount of polyester fiberfill to make one egg. About a handful is enough. If you are planning to make a collection of eggs, be sure to have enough of the stuffing on hand. For this project, you could purchase a small bag if you can find it. Usually, a large bag will yield about 16 oz for $10. That’s enough to fill a pillow. You can always keep the balance on hand for future projects. We used this same stuffing in our fantastic Unicorn and Shark Pom Pom keychains. It’s always great to have some on hand. You never know when you want to plump up a project.
There are very few supplies needed but the possibilities are endless.
Give it a try – see how many different variations you can create.
Have fun decorating your home with these embellished felt eggs!
