Make it a Dozen

I saw these cute little eggs on another blog. I thought I would try to make some of my own. I copied the pattern but mine did not turn out quite as egg shaped as retro mama's. Anna likes them and they are bright. There is one that I do not like because the two different fabrics had too much contrast. I think it is best when the two different fabrics have the same value.

These are beautiful. I have made similar eggs and fabric balls and this is my tip for getting them the shape you want. Spritz with water and then carefully iron the seams, without flattening the egg. You will probably have to hold the egg in one hand and carefully iron with the tip of your iron with the other hand. Be careful--don't burn yourself! You can get them surprisingly smooth and round this way.
