Each of the felt Easter egg accessories is made the same way. Below is an outline detailing the steps you need to take.

Step 1:

Trace pattern pieces onto freezer paper

Rough cut out

Iron freezer pattern piece onto felt

Felt Easter Egg decoration step 1

Using freezer paper gives you the most accurate shaped felt piece. Alternatively you can tape your pattern piece onto the felt with scotch tape. The benefit here is that your pattern pieces become stronger with each use

You only need to use a warm iron setting for this step. If you prefer to use a hot iron then use a pressing cloth

Step 2:

Cut out

Felt Easter Egg decoration step 2

When cutting felt it is best to use sharp scissors that can cut right to the tip

Step 3:

Iron freezer pattern piece onto firm interfacing

Cut out 2mm smaller than the pattern

Using firm interfacing gives these pieces extra strength & durability

This is important for the big pieces - wings and bow

It is cut smaller than the felt so that it doesn't show around the edges of the completed felt shape. Doing this also creates a nice 3D effect when the piece is finished

Step 4:

Combine retro flower felt and firm interfacing

Check you have 2mm clearance for your stitching and re-trim where necessary

Step 5:

Place a small piece of fusible webbing on each petal between the layers

Double sided fusible webbing not only adheres everything together it also increases the strength of the finished felt piece. 

Step 6:

Iron together

A hot iron (& pressing cloth) is needed to melt the webbing due to the thickness of both the felt & interfacing

Step 7:

Add velcro to backing felt

To check your velcro position on the backing piece of felt hold it up to a window or other light source

When stitching your velcro on use a matching thread to the velcro colour

Step 8:

Use fusible webbing to secure the front felt piece with firm interfacing onto the backing felt

Iron to secure

FEE Decoration Step 8

Remember to check that your velcro piece placement is central

Use a hot iron & a pressing cloth here

Step 9:

Stitch all layers together around the edge

Trim away excess felt backing

Use a slightly longer stitch than normal and sew close to the outer edge (1-2mm)

You should only be sewing through 2 layers of felt

Again use sharp scissors here and take care to not hold your scissors on an angle or you may find that you have cut through your stitching line on the back.

Step 10:

Add any extra embellishments

You may like to add extra accent lines to some of your pieces.

When doing these you may need to increase the size of your sewing machine needle (100/16 or a Jeans needle) especially if you need to sew through the velcro

Or you may like to add beads or buttons...
