How to Make Felt Easter Eggs
Step 1. Gather Supplies
- Easter Egg Template – found here in our FREE Resource Library
- Fabric Marker with Disappearing Ink
- Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
- Optional – Glue
Step 2: Use the Easter Egg Template, and trace egg shapes on the felt.
Cut out the felt eggs.
You will need two egg shapes to make one felt easter egg.
Step 3. Decorate the egg pieces.
You can use glue to add decorative pieces of felt to the front of your easter egg, as shown below.
You can also use different types of embroidery stitches to decorate your felt egg pieces too.
Step 4. Use a blanket stitch around the perimeter of two stacked felt eggs.
To do a blanket stitch with an embroidery needle and embroidery thread, start on the back of the egg and push the needle toward the front.
Then push the needle (from front to back) through the loop that forms.
Again – the needle goes from the back to the front.
Pull almost all of the slack out, leaving just a small loop.
Push the needle from front to back, through the small loop, and pull the remaining slack out.
Each time you do this, your blanket stitch should tighten up.
Step 5. Leave a space open to add stuffing to the egg.
Step 6. Once the egg is stuffed, continue the blanket stitch around the remainder of the egg’s perimeter until it’s completely closed.
You can repeat this same process with all different colors of felt, and you can decorate your eggs in lots of different ways too.
