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.

  1. Absolutely adorable! Another great felt project by you! :)

  2. Fun fun fun! Love it, although I have a post coming up that may differ on the age o,d question regarding the chicken and the egg ;) you are the felt queen!

  3. Those are the cutest Easter projects EVER Amy! I agree with Mel...you're the felt queen..hands down!

  4. I didn't know they made a pinking rotary cutter. I want one! These would be so much cuter for an easter egg hunt than the plastic ones.

    1. They do! And, I love that the label on them are pink. Thanks for your sweet comment.

  5. Super cute! My sister is going to be in Chicago with her kiddies this Easter and I'm trying to come up with fun little gifts to put in all the kids' baskets. This would be a cute one!

  6. Okay, these are possibly the cutest things I have ever seen. You could totally sell them. Pinning ASAP! xoxo

  13. I might have just died from cuteness! Seriously.. I want some of these! Maybe Ill make them for my kids and share. Maybe. ;)

  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.
