Well Hello, Little Peep!

I have been making these little fabric Easter eggs that I found a tutorial for on Retro Mama. It took me far more time to sew these little cuties up than I had imagined. I did learn the secret of a ladder stitch, though, and that is a bonus. I made a dozen and I would say only one actually looks like an egg. The others are all a bit misshapen. But you know what? I love them anyway.

I found a vintage egg cup that my Mom had given me years back. My one decent-looking egg now sits in this cup. Don't you just love the look on the little chick's face? Me too.

It came out cute Allison. Hey bet you didn't know that I have always wanted to collect egg cups, but never did. Ate an egg out of one every morning as a kid.
