april freebie 2010

this months freebie is so close to Easter (and a nice long weekend with plenty of time for sewing!) that I thought I'd combine a freebie prize draw with a free tutorial for everyone....

I have made 2 sets of Egg Cosies...Ribbon Eggs and....

....plain eggs.
There's a pattern below (right click the picture, save it to your computer and then print it out)


plain eggs are probably easier for beginners...you can use straight stitch, blanket stitch or whip stitch...which ever you prefer!

ribbon eggs are a bit more fiddly and would be better suited to sewers with a little more experience (cutting the egg outline is the hardest bit!)
I hope you would like to make your own egg cosies, it's great fun!

Now for the freebie part...
There are 2 prizes...one set of ribbon egg cosies ::

and one set of plain egg cosies ::

If you'd like to be entered into the freebie draw simply leave a comment on this blog post and I will draw 2 winners next Wednesday (7th April)
Rules & Things
1. only one comment per person please
2. I must be able to contact you via your comment
3. I will post worldwide
GOOD LUCK & HAPPY SEWING!
