A Craftbotic Egg!

If you visited Aimee's Easter Egg hunt at It's Overflowing, you will have seen an amazing group of people posting their Easter Egg designs. I was really excited to be invited to join in.  This is the mini tutorial I posted last week, just in case you missed it!

My egg:
You need: a polystyryne egg, some tissue paper, dress makers pins, sequins, a scrap of felt and some coloured ball pins.

The idea for my egg came from an old sequined boob tube I wore at University 9 years ago (I would share a picture of the outfit, but trust me, NO-ONE wants to see it!) My initial plan was to recycle the sequins and cover my polystyrne egg in them using the dressmaker pins.

After 3 rows, with slightly sore fingers, I turned to plan B, which was to glue layers of tissue paper to the top and bottom of the egg, with the aim of having a sparkly belt around the middle. 

After adding some more sequins, I ended up with this:

While I liked it, I wanted to make something a little different. So I grabbed a small amount of felt and some yellow ball pins to make a daisy.

I chopped the felt into a circle and then pinned it to my egg.  It's a little quirky, but I really like it!

 I hope you like it. I launched Craftbotic in March 2012 after starting with a Christmas blog last September.  I hope to make lots of new bloggy friends. So remember tohell say hello - Happy Egg Hunting!
