Felt Eggs With Little Pockets


Today I made some felt eggs with little pockets. The pockets can hold candy or gift cards. And if your family member or friend has a short name it can be sewn onto the egg.

Supply List:

egg cookie cutter or template

white felt

embroidery thread

needle 

scissors

small beads

bits of lace and rick-rack

small buttons

glue gun

glue sticks

Directions:

Cut eggs out of white felt. Cut one egg in half with a zig-zag pattern.


Decorate the bottom zig=zag piece with lace, rick-rack, beads and buttons.


Sew the zig-zag piece onto the front of the egg.



Sew the name of the recipient on the top of the egg.


The back of the egg is a little messy. 



So hot glue another felt egg onto the back of the egg. This covers up the messy stitches.


Now the candy can be added.


Since I gave up sweets for Lent - I had to decline the free sample. Bummer, I know.



I taped the See's egg to the back of the felt egg. And added the lollipop and See's small chocolate eggs inside the little pocket. Gift cards can also be added to the pocket.

Happy Easter to You!
