Eggs is eggs . . .

After making the matryoshka softie last week, I was still dabbling around with my fabrics and stuffing.  I started playing around with the idea of making Harris Tweeds eggs - yes, you heard that right :) :) Well, Easter is on the horizon and although I don't always make seasonal products, it's nice to make something that would make a fun, appropriate gift with a difference!


I scented the second one I made with some lavender,  so it's soft, squishy, and smells nice too . . .


Still a little in 'prototype' mode, but they look quite pretty perched on a dressing table, particularly if they're scented.  The one above has a linen backing which is probably how I'll make any future ones.  I'm waiting for a little batch of ribbon in the post today (I'm trying to use as much of my current supplies as possible but my ribbon stash is very low!) and apart from getting some more stuffing,  I'm ready to break some more eggs!

Nice to have a new product to work on though -  I think they would make a nice alternative to yet MORE chocolate!  Hope to have a little batch of them to show you soon :)

Perhaps I'll try to make an extra one to giveaway on my blog - watch this space!

Happy Monday!

P.S.  Just updated my post with the new 'ribbon' egg :) :)

With the lavender they would make great little sachets, too. I like the ribbon touch!
