Felt Easter Egg Bunting


From all the felt projects I've done in the past I have quite the stack of odds and ends just hanging around and wanted to use some of it up. With Easter being just around the corner and much of my collection being colors that are Easter appropriate I thought I'd put together a quick and simple bunting inspired by the paint chip garland I made a few years ago.

Materials
  • handful of different colored felt
  • felt for backing (I chose white)
  • soft drawstring rope
  • sewing machine
  • pins
  • cardboard to make template


Cut out an egg shaped template, size depends on your taste for the bunting. Trace template and cut out felt, I did 18 eggs. Next draw a line down the center of each cut out felt egg to be a guide when cutting in half.



Once all eggs are cut in half pair desired colors together, stitch together and iron open seems (seems will touch backing felt). Cut out same number of backing felt eggs and pin rope sandwiched between pieces at desired intervals.


Stitch around the outer edge of each egg, trim excess thread and you're done!








And guess what? I kid you not but all the decorating your see in the above photo cost me under $10! Pretty Great. Those paper rosettes only cost 8 cents each to make! If you missed that tutorial be sure to check it out NOW!
