Use the template (attachment) to cut four pieces of fabric for each egg. The triangular ‘notch’ is to help you to identify the top of each piece; try to mark the two dots accurately – they indicate starting and stopping points for your stitching. The template includes 6mm seam allowances.You can use one two or four different fabrics.
Repeat step 2 with two further pieces of fabric.
Turn one pair of panels right side out, and slot them inside the second pair). Pin or tack. Sew around the two sides, leaving a 2cm–3cm gap to turn your fabric through (again, reverse at either side for strength) .
Before turning your fabric egg out through the opening, trim the seams down to 3mm and clip them at close intervals, taking care not to snip your stitching (leave the seam 6mm deep at the opening). Turn your fabric egg out through the gap.
