Handmade Easter Egg Cosy

Measure your egg cup.
Select a spring coloured piece of felt and cut out two flat-ended oval shapes, leaving enough excess for snipping the seam later on.
Mark on the felt where the stitch line should appear and hand stitch the two pieces of fabric together using embroidery thread in a coordinating colour.
You should now have a hat shape. Turn this inside out so that the seam is hidden.
Stitch some gingham ribbon around the hem and then top it off with another row of sparkly strung sequin & some feature buttons.
Iron-on, glue-on or stitch an Easter themed hot-fix motif to the front and back of the cosy.
Add further detail by embellishing the fabric around the motif with embroidered cross stitches.
To finish off, thread a marabou feather through a gap in the seam stitching and glue gun into place from the inside.
