Fabric Easter Eggs

Inspired by Retro Mama and Sew Happiness I decided to make some fabric Easter eggs.

When I was younger I remember making similar stuffed shapes (I did balls, cubes, cones...) for a school project, so making these brought back some memories! 


My kids recognized them as eggs right away!  The largest was dubbed the dinosaur egg, the middle sized came from crocodiles (according to the 5 yr old) and the smallest are just plain ol' boring hen eggs.

We don't lack imagination in this house!

The eggs even got their own photo op outside today:


They now sit as pictured on my coffee table...that won't last long!  I'm sure the kids will be playing with them again as soon as they get home!
