I ♥Felt - Felt Eggs

I've wanted to make felt food to replace Bubba's plastic food in his kitchen/shopping cart for awhile now, but haven't had the time to do so.

The other day, while thinking of different uses for the box of plastic Easter eggs I bought, I had the brilliant idea to make felt eggs to go inside a few. And, really, eggs seemed like the easiest food to start off making.

I did a little google searching, and found a whole collection of tutorials for felt food on Apartment Therapy. Since I was starting with eggs, I used the tutorial from One Crafty Mumma as my guide.

I used the template provided for the egg yolk, but decided to create my own stencil for the whites.

As you can see, I didn't use a sewing machine like One Crafty Mumma. I'm not so good at sewing anything other than a straight line, so I thought it would be quicker and less frustrating to do it by hand. 

Sew one side of the yolk, stuff, then sew closed. 
Sew 2 egg white pieces together.
I did give this one a try on the machine, but liked the hand sewn look better. 

 Finished product {sorry for the dark picture, it was night time}.

It was so cute how excited he was to pop open the eggs.

(I can't figure out how to make this smaller, so if you know how, please fill me in)

Flipping eggs!

 I don't know where he has picked this up from {he's never seen me try to do that}, but I think it's so awesome that he did it...we'll see if he can flip real eggs one day {when he's older, of course}.

I also made the orange slices from One Crafty Mumma. I'll post those soon.

Happy Weekend!

Oh, and Happy Birthday to my amazing brother!!! Love you, Bear!
