|Ways to Dress Up Your Eggs or Keep Them Warm|
This quick and easy diy also requires an empty toilet paper/tissue roll or other paper/cardboard roll, such as Waxed Paper, Foil, etc.
If you were with me a few months ago, I wrote about my adventure in sewing a Rosary Case. Well, it was time to climb that mountain again, the sewing machine mountain. I successfully scaled it! Of course, the thread came out of the needle a few times and I didn't have to change the bobbin on this project, so I may have just escaped the usual mountaineering accidents. On to the project...
For the Cup:
Cut an empty toilet paper roll in half or thirds. Eyeball the burlap by wrapping it around the paper roll and cut to fit. Use glue or gluestick to attach burlap to roll. Cut out your trims and glue them on; allow to dry and then you have a nifty Easter Egg Cup.
For the Cozy:
The felt egg cozy uses two pieces of felt, cut the same size, approximately a three inch wide semi-circle. Three inches wide at the straight edge. This will fit a large or xl egg. Go to two inches wide for a small or medium egg. I prefer not too snug, so made them larger.
I sewed along the outside, so there are no turned seams. Hand sewing is also a good option. Then for personalization or frippery, glue or sew on ribbons and your trims.
Now I'm inspired to find my egg cups and buy some new ones, maybe a thrift store discovery, too. Soft boiled eggs in a cup, how nice on a cold morning.
If you eat eggs, what's your favorite way to cook and eat them? If you don't eat eggs what's your favorite breakfast?
EDIT: Wanted to share this in case any one is wondering how to get the frayed edge on the burlap without all the edge coming undone: Snip one single strand of the burlap weave and then pull it up/or down and off the piece you are working with. That's it. Enjoy and Happy Easter!
