    Felt is a soft, dense, very pliable material suitable for creativity. The advantage over fabric is that it does not crumble, it is easy to sew from it. Easter crafts can be decorated in the form of eggs or more unusual - in the form of charming bunnies, chickens.

    To sew this toy you will need:

    1. felt in different colors;
    2. scissors;
    3. threads in tone or contrast (you can take floss);
    4. needles(better with a big eye);
    5. synthetic stuffing for toys or cotton;
    6. pattern.

    A life size template can be downloaded from this page below.

    Cut out the details of the toy, the seam allowances are already set in the pattern. It is best to use a seam "over the edge" with a width of 0.3-0.5 cm, so the product will turn out neater. When about 1.5-2 cm remains unsewn, stuff the toy with soft material or granulate, sew it up. If you attach a ribbon loop, you can hang this craft.

    Decorate eggs

    The easiest way is to color with special food coloring or the old fashioned way, with onion skins. However, Easter eggs can be decorated in an unconventional and original way - using the decoupage technique. In this case, the picture is cut out of special paper, but you can use ordinarypatterned napkins. Decoupage technology is simple.

    A suitable motif is cut out of a napkin. If the napkin is multi-layered, it is divided into layers. We need only the top, colorful layer. Using a flat brush and PVA glue diluted in half with water, the picture is glued onto the shell. The glue is completely non-toxic. If you are decorating a blank made of wood or foam, you must first cover it with a layer of acrylic white primer, then glue the cut out picture. The last layer will be varnish. An egg that is intended for food should not be varnished.

    Color eggs with intact shells with felt-tip pens, markers, drawing funny faces or intricate patterns. Linen lace and braid are suitable for decor in the popular country style. Gold food coloring and beads add sparkle and glam to this traditional treat.
