Looking for some easy do make Easter Sewing Ideas? We have a great project for you right here!
Making your Easter sewing projects with your kids not only brings you and your little ones closer together but also creates an opportunity for your kids to be creative and make Easter that much more special.
One great reason to make your own Easter Eggs out of felt is that they are not made out of chocolate! This gives you the chance to cut down on the amount of sugar you or your children eat at this special time of the year.
What I found in my house was that once we started making our own felt easter eggs, that we just had a couple of very special chocolate Easter Eggs per person, which kept everyone nice and trim, and the kids remained calm as well which was a great bonus.
Once the children had made their own eggs and bunnies, they started to make some as gifts as well. They gave some to their friends and also put some aside for the next time that their grandparents came to visit.
DIY Easter Sewing Ideas – Tutorial
In this tutorial, I will show you what materials to use, take you through with easy to follow step-by-step instructions. If you are an experienced sewer you will probably have most of these materials at home already.
- Good quality felt fabric in yellow, blue, pink and green
- Embroidery thread in pink, red and white
- Hand-sewing needles
- Fabric glue
- Medium size scissors for cutting fabric with a straight tip
- Pen or pencil
- A3 size sheet of thick white paper
- Set of sewing pins
Here are our easy step-by-step instructions for how to make your very own Easter sewing project:
Draw your shapes on your white paper sheet with a pen or a pencil.
Place the paper shapes (according to the colors) on your chosen color felt and trace over the shapes with a pencil. When completed, you are ready to cut them out.
A great way to finish off the edges of the felt egg is to use a blanket stitch choosing the complementing color embroidery thread.
For the yellow shape, use the red thread, for the pink or blue shape use the white thread, and so on.
To decorate your Easter eggs, simply cut out little shapes of leaves and/or flowers and stitch them onto the egg shape with a corresponding color that will complement the color of the shape.
Final Thoughts and Tips
I love to have fun with Easter sewing ideas, simply because there are so many. You can also choose to create other shapes, such as Easter bunnies or little chicks.
It is always more fun when you are not limited to simple designs, right? And, of course, you can create your own personalized designs to decorate your ornaments.
