FABRIC EGG PLUSH INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1: Download and cut out the Easter egg pattern

Download our free fabric egg pattern from the link above. Make sure to print it out at 100 % (no scaling at all, so that you get the correct sizing). Measure the test line to ensure it printed correctly. Cut around the easter egg pattern. This simple egg quarter template is all you need to sew an easter egg.

Seam allowance is ¼” (6mm) and is already included.

TIP: Prepare your fabric – wash, dry and PRESS it in advance, as you will not be able to press the egg once its formed.

STEP 2: Cut the fabric

Cut out 4 pieces of fabric according to the Easter egg pattern. The easiest and quickest way to do that is to fold the fabric in fourth, with right sides together.egg plush pattern - fabrics pinned to the easter egg template

Pin the egg pattern to the fabric using could of pins and cut it out. You will end up with four egg quarters. These simple fabric pieces are all you need to make the fabric egg plush. It takes very little fabric, so you can even use up some of the scraps. Some of my readers shared they love their Easter eggs to be as colorful as possible, so they used 2 different fabrics per fabric egg. It does not matter whether you will place the egg template on the grain or on the bias, you just need to fit it on the fabric.

STEP 3: Layer fabrics

Take two of the egg quarters and place them on top of each other, with their right sides together. Note that the top of the egg template is a little bit pointier than the bottom. You want to keep all the tops together and all of the bottoms together.

Repeat for the remaining 2 egg pieces

STEP 4: Pin

Pin each of the egg halves in place

STEP 5: Stitch the fabric egg halves

Stitch down the right side of each half egg using a quarter of an inch seam allowance. I would recommend you to use smaller stitches as it is just easier for the machine to turn corners when using smaller stitches, than if using larger stitches.

Trim down the seam allowance with sharp scissors OR clip it. You don’t need to measure this, just trim a bit of the extra fabric. This step is optional, but it will allow the fabric egg to look even better.

STEP 6: Assemble the fabric egg

Take the two egg halves and turn around one of them. Use your fingers to push out the seam allowance, then slide it into the other. You need to place the egg halves right sides together.

STEP 7: Pin around the fabric easter egg

Match the seam allowances on the top and the bottom of the egg. Fingerpress seams in opposite directions. Make sure one seam goes in one direction and the other seam in the opposite direction. This will nestle those seams together and will prevent unnecessary bulk at the seams. Pin everything in place.

STEP 8: Sew around

Sew around the fabric egg, and leave an 1 ½ inch gap for turning

STEP 9: Trim and turn inside out

Trim the seam allowance all around the easter egg, but don’t trim the gap. Why? Because if you trim it down, it will be really difficult to stitch it closed later

Turn the fabric egg around and push out all seams using your fingertips. Taking the time to do this guarantees your fabric egg would look its best.

STEP 10: Stuff the egg with stuffing

Stuff it to your liking. I’d like the stuffing to be fairly firm as it pushes out the seam allowances

STEP 11: Stitch the gap

Hand sew the fabric Easter egg using a ladder (invisible) stitch.
