It’s Easter Weekend next weekend and it’s one of my favourite weekends of all the year. Of course that means getting creative to celebrate it in my home. What is a long weekend without some creative time? If you are looking for some inspiration I’ve collected my Easter makes here to give you some ideas. Happy Easter!

Easter Egg decorating
I have some more eggs to decorate which will be coming here soon.
Do you have any Easter traditions? Church, Chocolate, Egg hunts, Seeing the sun rise? We often have boiled eggs and soldiers for breakfast on Sunday morning And what do you need to have eggs for breakfast? A beautiful egg cup and an egg cosy!
Here’s a collection of beautiful egg cups I love the bunny ones! And continue on down for an embroidered egg cosy tutorial designed by my friend Kirsty.

To make the egg cosy you will need:
2 pieces of fabric for lining, 2 pieces of felt for outer cosy, 1 egg shaped piece of felt, 120cm thread to blanket stitch around egg cosy, 150cm thread to oversew egg to cosy & fabric to felt, various threads to embroider onto egg. You will also need: A basic sewing kit including needle, scissors & pins.
Sew your design or pattern onto the felt egg. If you separate your thread into 3 strands it makes it easier to sew, with the exception of a french knot which works better with the full 6 strands.
Oversew your egg onto one of the felt cosy pieces leaving at least 1.5cm at the bottom of the felt.
Pin your cosy pieces together as follows: felt, 2 pieces of fabric (right sides together), felt.
Fold and fold again the fabric sticking out of the bottom, then pin and oversew to the felt, on both sides.
Finish by blanket stitching around the edge of the cosy, using fairly large stitches so that all of the layers of felt and fabric are sewn together.
Pop onto your boiled egg to keep it warm!
