Egg-actually Like the Model!!

Lizzie*Kate just released a cute new pattern called Chick Party.   This blog post will help you finish your little egg just like the model.

First go to her website lizziekate.com and print off the egg template.


After printing it gather up your supplies comic board, fabric quilt batting, trim and cording.


Cut two egg shapes from the comic board.  Mark the insides with an X


Now cover the two outsides with low loft quilt batting.  Trim flush with the edges.


Now take your backing fabric and trim it about 3/4 inch from the edge of the form


Start gluing fabric to the back of the template.  I like to do top, bottom, side, side first.  


Then gently gather and glue the sections between. If you get a fold lift it up and try again.  



Check to make sure everything is nice and smooth on the opposite side





Repeat with the stitched linen.....spend time getting centered and straight.  Us a few straight pins to keep it in place while gluing. 


We used Peony Ric Rack by Lady Dot.  Fold down the raw edge and then glue around the outside edge.


Once you make it around to the top, fold down the edge and then add the hanger.  I use twisted cord but jute, ribbon or nbaby Rick rack would also work.


Now give a good dose of glue on the bottom half of the Rick rack and along the inside edge.



Center stitching in top and use clips to make good contact along the edges.


Let dry....and your egg will looks egg-actually like the model....no yoke!
