Here, just for you, is an eggcelent eggbroidery pattern freebie. Ok, silly pun time over. T
You can find the pattern here. If you make these you MUST share with me on zee facebooks or flickr. Or else! (Insert non-threatening fist shaking and tough face here.)
I printed the pattern on linen fabric, which I teach how to do in my book Stitched Gifts, but you can also transfer the pattern with water soluble pen or an iron transfer pen/pencil. After stitching I sandwiched two pieces of fabric together (I used a blank egg pattern) and did a simple backstitch around the egg shape, leaving about an inch open to fill the egg. I stuffed my little eggs with the blunt end of a paint brush to get a nice rounded shape, and then sealed them up with the back stitch. Simple & fun!
