First there were hens, then there were....

Egg Cosies 

I've seen a few ways of making egg cosies, but I decided to go with the way they were in Cross Stitcher, When I cut the egg shape out I left the piece with the stitching on longer than the felt shapes and hemmed in on what will be the inside of the egg cosies  then the stitching is attached onto the felt with running stitching tucking in the edges in as you go, I also went round and did a little slip stitch to make sure it didn't come undone mainly because even weave is very prone to unravelling. pop some ribbon in between the second piece of felt and sew back into the same running stitch and hey presto you are done.

They are going to be two little Easter presents

Set one

Set two
This is my first go at egg cosies and I think I am going to make a few more. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
