A Couple of Easter Listings!
I just fell in love with this fabric when I saw it and knew it would make the perfect set of Easter egg tucks! The fabric is just filled with beautiful pastel colors in a tye-die print! I had a hard time deciding whether I should stain these because I didn't want to take away from the colors. But the colors are still there. I may have to make another set and leave them unstained...we'll see.
Below is a pretty little Easter egg shelf sitter. It has a very dense filler that allows it to sit nice and flat. Some things I like puffy and will use a different type of fiberfill for those things. But with this egg I wanted to have that firm fill. This egg is made from a quilted piece of linen and stained with a coffee and spice mix. Underneath the cheese cloth bow is a little gathering that I made from sweet annie, pip berries and grapevine twigs. I used a large rusty safety pin to pin this on. Sometimes I hide the pins, sometimes I don't. I really like the rustic feel this gives the egg. And look at that sweet little prim tag.
I chose to show this one as a shelf sitter. But I think it would also look nice hanging on the wall, a door or a cupboard knob. I made one a couple of weeks ago similar to this one and added a loop from rusty wire to the top of the egg. It was sold as a hangin'. Here's a picture of that one. Yep...same piece of linen--opposite ends. I'm working on some Easter eggs from this same piece. It will have all the colors from both of these larger eggs.
