Felt Egg Tutorial

Looking for some cute “pretend” food for your kids to play with? How adorable are these felt eggs made out of scraps of felt and leftover plastic Easter eggs? It's an easy project, and a perfect way to recycle dollar store eggs.

You’ll need:
  • Scraps of white & yellow felt
  • Cotton balls or stuffing
  • A needle and thread (yellow & white)
  • Scissors
  • Paper and pencil (to make a template)

Here's how easy they are to make:

Cut two eggs shapes out of white felt and one yolk shape out of yellow felt.  (You can make a paper template first.  It makes it a little easier.)

Put a little cotton under the yellow “yolk” and stitch it to the top of one of the white pieces of felt.  Then stitch the two pieces of felt together, and you are finished!

You could package these felt eggs in a plastic Easter eggs to make them extra special.  Cute, right?

  1. Cute idea! I love felt! And putting it in an easter egg is a neat touch :) Ooh, Green eggs and ham anyone? I'll bet those would be easier to make with felt. :)

  2. this is such a fun idea...can't wait to make it for my DD...by the way does it matter what kind of felt you use? (acrylic vs wool blend)....

    1. Thanks! I think you could use either. I just used scraps I had lying around. ;-)
