Felt Egg Holder AND Finger Puppet Tutorial

Which came first, the chicken or the egg?


The egg, of course, or at least for this tutorial.


You'll need some brightly colored felt.


To crack your egg, you'll need pinking sheers or a pinking rotary cutter.


To sew up your eggs, you'll need matching embroidery thread.


Cut your felt egg out (1 full egg and 1 cracked egg).  Overlap the cracked top sections of the egg then layer on top of the full felt egg.  Using your matching embroidery thread, do a running stitch around the perimeter of your egg to close it off.


You now have a felt cracked egg holder.


You can fill it up with jelly beans OR...


You can make a felt chick finger puppet to fit inside your cracked egg.


You'll need to gather the following supplies:


First, make French knots for the eyes through one section of the yellow felt body.  Second, sew the beak into place, in the center so the mouth can still flap.  Third, place your yellow feathers between the two yellow felt body layers.  Finally, using a running stitch, sew the 2 pieces of the body together (leaving the bottom open).


When you're done, stick your chick in your cracked egg.


And now we can continue the debate, which came first the chicken or the egg.

  14. That finger puppet is the perfect quiet toy for church or where ever. I think you need to make one for every finger, but mine might need to be larger, I have a hard time sitting still and being quiet.
