Make an egg cosy

What you will need

  • Felt – white and yellow;
  • Pinking shears;
  • Needle;
  • White thread;
  • Craft glue
  1. We made adorable little egg cosies by cutting matching flat-bottomed egg shapes
    from felt using pinking shears. The shape had to be big enough to fit over the eggs when sewn together.
  2. Tie a stopper knot at one end of the thread. Put needle through the felts and pull gently until the stopper knot stops the thread from going all the way through.
  3. Now simply hand-stitch two halves together.
  4. Tie off the thread by sewing back on the thread several times and then thread needle and thread under the sewn last stick loop, half knot and through a loop again.  Pull and cut the thread.
  5. Glue on a pair of eyes and a yellow felt beak for a chirpy addition to the table.

Lessons learned long ago are still there.

I have been checking out a link that I have from Facebook.  Heres my memory flash.:

I actually cannot remember what mine was.  1970’s are a bit long ago.  I do remember having to sew the darn thing onto my dark blue uniform sleeve.  Then finding out about a month later that I had sewn everything on in the mirror image.  I think thats when I learned to unpick my own sewing well.    Guess who had to sew everything back on the other way around.

Years later I got really hard to sew the badges down the sleeves, remove others as they had to be replaced when emblems took their place.  No wonder I enjoy informing the current guides that leaving the  badges on their sash (except patrol emblems) is a terrific idea. A personal history pathway that can lead to really great discussions with others who want to, are or have do a similar badge.

Yes I still sew things on in mirror image today.
