I created these felted eggs using plastic eggs from Walgreen's, and wool felt. I wrapped the felt around the eggs, put them in a nylon stocking, tied string around the stocking to hold them in place, and put them in the washer and dryer. To finish I wrapped embroidery floss around each egg.(see Judy Coates Perez video on How to Make Felted Pumpkins)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDufUyPsncw
I created these magnets by painting and stamping the background. Then, I stamped the flowers, cut them apart, stitched around the flowers, and zigzagged around the edges to bind. Finally, I add tiny crystals in the center for sparkle.
