Little Quilted Egg Cosies

Easter Egg Cosy Update


I'm still happily stitching little egg cosies whenever I get a quiet couple of minutes and I have to say that are looking very cute and perfect for Spring!




Regular readers will know that I need thirty-two of these personalised warmers ready for Easter Sunday.  They each have their new owner's initial on the back and a raw edge applique on the front.  I finished another little batch of front pieces last night and they now just need stitching up.




These designs are my own, but some of the previous cosies have appliques based on the work of other more talented folk.  You can see those designs, and their original source, on my Pinterest Easter board.

  18. These cosies are gorgeous! Having just tried some small scale appliqué tell me - how do you secure the fabric so that it stays where you put it to be sewn on? Is there a trick?

    1. For tiny pieces I use bondaweb, but it can make the item too stiff to handsew, it's fine for machine stitching though.

  19. Beautiful, great choices of fabric. You have great control of your sewing machine on such small applique :) (not envious at all!!)
