Good Saturday morning to you all! What's for breakfast at your house today? Over here we have made some sunny side up eggs just in time for Easter (or April Fools!).
Buttons Galore and More...Here's just a few of the buttons I got...and get to play with! The first thing I did was sort them all and played with them. As I look
at them, I let the ideas come to the surface and the first project I
knew I had to make was some eggs...sunny side up! It was the only thing I
could think of when I saw these huge yellow, asymmetrical
buttons...yolks! Does that make me weird? I think so! But fun. Always
Here's what you'll need:
I used a natural wool felt for my base
I used a bright white wool yarn to make the egg whites.
You'll need needle felting tools (Mat, needles & brush (for cleaning the mat)
The "Buttons Galore and More" Yellow "Yolk" buttons
& a little Yellow yarn or ribbon for tying the yolk to the egg
(If you want to make these way easier - you can use bright white fleece and sew a couple of pieces right sides together, leaving open a small space for turning, sew on the buttons, and then close the opening with a ladder stitch.)
These would be great for Easter Egg Spoon Races - put them in a plastic Easter egg and off you go...if it drops and pops open, you've cracked the egg and have to start all over again. They would also be a lot of fun for April Fools...maybe on a slice of felted bread, with some felted bacon on the side?!
