Fabric-covered Easter eggs

Cover eggs in fabric pieces for a pretty patchwork effect.

Here's how: Choose a selection of brightly patterned fabrics, either new or remnants. Peel off one paper layer from a double-sided adhesive sheet and attach the sticky side to the back of fabric. Smooth and press out any air bubbles. Print template onto thick paper (like card stock) and trace onto the paper-backed side of fabric. Cut out fabric shape and remove the paper backing. Apply the sticky side of the fabric to the egg, pressing down the edges with your fingers. Use as many fabric shapes as needed to cover egg. (We used eight for each egg). For a uniform look, use the same fabric—or play with complementary patterns and colors.
