Today I made a fabric goose egg. I thought it would bring me luck. (smiles) Next time, I’ll make one in gold, but today I recycled a rather worn kids t-shirt for fabric and a shoulder pad from an archaic shirt plus a holey sock for the filling. It was fun. What’s a bonus about this egg is that it becomes a kids throw ball the day after Easter. What’s the trick? T-shirt cotton is rather stretchy and this allow you to squeeze the egg into any shape you like.
If you want firm and professional looking eggs, then just apply all that you are learning in this pattern to non-stretchy, cotton, quilting fabric.
This quilted egg pattern will soon be for sale in my Pattern- Shop for just US$2. Patterns are emailed to you instantly / within 24 hours.
