Everything is explained step by step, you can download the pattern for free, the difficulty level is 1 star (easy) and making one Easter egg takes about 45 minutes.

We are going to start!
1.Download the free pattern of this tutorial and cut the pattern out of the paper.
2. My pattern shows two different eggs. You can of course copy these, but you could also make a combination of these 2 patterns, come up with something yourself or decorate the eggs with something other than felt. For this explanation I make the two eggs that can be found on my pattern. At the bottom of the tutorial I will show another variation that I also made.
Cut 4 eggs from a chosen color of felt using the pattern.
3. Then I cut out all the parts that will go on the egg from the felt and placed them on the eggs. As you will see, the parts protrude slightly. That's okay. Don't cut this yet.
4. Glue all loose parts onto the egg. Do not stick the eggs together. Do not put glue near the edges of the egg. If there is a lot of glue there, it will be difficult to get through with a needle. When the glue has dried, cut off the protruding parts of the glued parts.
5. Place the eggs neatly on top of each other. Place the ribbon between the 2 egg pieces at the top.
6. Grab a needle and thread and secure the ribbon properly.
7. Then continue with the blanket stitch to put the eggs together. Try to make nice even stitches. You can continue the stitch until about 3 cm to your starting point at the ribbon.
8. Stop there with the blanket stitch. Do not cut the thread!
9. Take some filling and put it in the egg. Not too much. The egg only needs to bulge slightly.
10. Now continue with the blanket stitch to the starting point. Tie the thread securely with a knot and cut it. The egg is ready :-). I then did steps 6 to 10 to finish the other egg. The photo shows the two eggs.
As promised in step 2, below is my other variant. I also always worked with the same 4 colors for this variant. This ensures that all the different eggs form a unity.
In this photo a close up of my other eggs that I made.
What do your Easter eggs look like?
Hopefully you are satisfied? What are you going to do with your Easter eggs? I am very curious about your creation or how your house is decorated with Easter items.
