Paper Egg Art

I am so excited to share today’s tutorial with you!  It is the cutest stitched Easter egg I’ve ever seen.  🙂

My stitched paper egg is such a great addition to my Easter mantel.  I love all of the bright pops of color, and sewing paper is SO seriously EASY! 

I started by cutting ovals using my Cricut and 5 different papers.  I then created stripes from the different ovals {free hand}.  I glued all of the stripes of paper onto a background egg paper {my background egg is the sparkly orange paper since it was the thickest} and added some additional circles and flowers also cut by my Cricut from my colored paper.  This is the layered egg pre-stitching.

 

Once the glue dried I sewed each edge using my sewing machine and a zigzag stitch.

It was amazingly simple to sew.

The back even looks cool!

Don’t you just love all of the colors and I really love seeing the little holes created by the needle in the sewing machine.

This is just adorable!  I LOVE the sparkling glitter paper too.

Happy Easter!  Now, who is going to make one for themselves?  C’mon, it really is easy!  Looks great with a few extra twine eggs I had left over from by Twine Egg Garland.
