Easter Eggstravaganza: Fabric Eggs, served up your way

I adore the vintage prints designer Rebekah Meier used to create these fabric eggs. I have some fabrics in my stash that would be perfect for these Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs. And that’s one of the reasons why I like these DIY Easter Eggs – they easily adapt to your favorite fabrics. The technique is easy, too, so this is an Easter craft the kids would enjoy. Especially if they get to select their own fabrics!

Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs by Rebekah Meier.

To make Sunny, Springtime Fabric Eggs:

1. Using scissors and a ruler, or the optional rotary cutter and mat, cut fabrics into ¼” strips.

2. Insert a wood skewer or chopstick into the wide end of each egg to use as a handle.

3. Load paintbrush with Mod Podge and apply liberally and evenly on an egg. Randomly wind a fabric strip around the egg. Repeat with additional fabric strips till egg is completely covered. Wrap remaining eggs in the same manner.

You’ll wrap each egg in fabric strips. Kids can make these easy eggs, too.

4. Topcoat eggs with Mod Podge. Insert the skewers or chopsticks into the block or scrap of STYROFOAM Brand Foam to hold the eggs upright while they dry.

5. Wrap a ribbon around each egg and tie into a bow. Secure with glue. Pin a flower to the center of each bow.

These pretty, fabric eggs are not just for Easter. DIY on CraftsnCoffee.com.

Go ahead and display these little pretties year-round.

Here’s another, classic technique for making fabric-covered Easter eggs. Again, the beauty is in making it your own with your own fabric selections.

These are classic, but look really cool with the modern Michael Miller fabrics. Tutorial on CraftsnCoffee.com.

The Eggstravaganza isn’t over yet! I hope you’ll continue on this creative journey with me. That’s a little a hint about tomorrow’s eggs. Any guesses what they’ll be?

Happy crafting.

    Awesome & so Sweet. Love the idea of the vast amount of different fabric scraps. Sweet or bold, traditional or artsy, it’s your choice.

    Love these wrapped Easter Eggs! Any age could make them. I am even thinking a little bit of lace would be a pretty addition – from your scrap pile, of course. Going to have to make these!

      I like the way you’re thinking, Angie. These are definitely stash busters. I can’t wait to see your eggs – do send a photo. Thank you. Sharon

    These look fun, especially the tie dye. My kids LOVE to make tie dyed shirts and I bet they would like these. 🙂

    • Sharon says:

      I bet they would like these, too. Especially if they got to make their own tie-dye fabric. Just be sure to use a knit fabric for the eggs. Happy crafting! Sharon

  5. What lovely fabrics on the first three eggs! So very pretty! I just love them! I am thinking tomorrow we are going to map out a new way to create eggs! Sunnyside up! LOL See you then!
