I have two friends that have birthdays soon after Christmas and this year I wasn't on the ball enough to get them presents, so I've made them Easter presents instead.
I used a toy plastic egg for a template and drew the oval shape on muslin.
Then I pieced each egg shape in pastel colors. I embroidered and added some buttons and charms. Then I cut the same shape out of light cardboard, two for each egg. After hot gluing some batting down to one egg shaped cardboard, I stretched the crazy piece over it and glued it down around the outside on the back. I glued a piece of fabric over the other piece in the same way to be the back of my egg. Then I added some lace around the edge and a ribbon hanger at the top of the crazy piece and attached the back with hot glue also.
And just when you thought it was safe to go into the living room........SHARK-BOY!!!
