Project #56 Bunny Rabbit egg cozy
Bunny rabbit egg cosy by Khali from Little. Lovely.
Hippity hoppity Easter’s on it’s way and I’m trying to avoid giving chocolate eggs as gifts this holiday. Egg cosies are a craft from my childhood that I recently resurrected to help my plans when the big bunny rolls into town.
*Small piece of fabric, such as felt or a knit
*Coloured embroidery thread
Step one: Cut two rectangles from your fabric and round the top ends with scissors. Cut two triangles from the leftover scraps of fabric.
Step two: Attach two buttons to one of the rounded rectangles and use embroidery thread to sew a small cross underneath. This will form your bunny’s face.
Step three: Place your two pieces of fabric together and secure them with a blanket stitch , leaving the bottom open. Blanket stitch each side of the bottom opening.
Step four: Blanket stitch around the edges of your triangles. Note: The blanket stitch may make the fabric curl. This will give your bunny’s ears a unique ‘flop’. If you would prefer your ears to maintain their shape, cut an additional two triangles of fabric and stitch two pieces together to create one ear.
Step five: Secure the ears to the back of the cosy using a basic running stitch.
Step six: Pop your cosy over a hard boiled egg to keep it warm.
