Free Pattern – Embroidered Felt Easter Egg

Fancy Felt Easter Egg - a free pattern from Shiny Happy WorldYou (yes, you!) can stitch up a lovely Easter egg just like this one. What do you need? Some felt. Preferably wool felt. It’s dreamy to stitch on and you can find it in gorgeous colors here, in my very own shop.

You’ll need embroidery thread. Choose four colors you like – or use the ones I specify in the pattern. They’re all from my medium and light thread bundles.

You’ll need the pattern – of course. Download that here. It’s full-sized, so no enlarging needed.

And finally, you’ll need a bit of stuffing. A handful of cotton balls will do the trick.

Do you have questions about working with felt? I answer a bunch of common questions here – including info about how to transfer an embroidery pattern to felt. I recommend using The Magical Embroidery Stuff.

It’s Easy

You’ve never even held an embroidery needle before and think it looks pretty complicated? Fear not, my friend! This pattern uses only four easy stitches and I have videos teaching you every one of them: backstitch, running stitch, lazy daisy, and French knot.

You can totally make this!

      Okay. I signed up now how do I get the Easter egg pattern ? Every “free pattern” text comes back to the pix and text – no pttern !

    • Every once in a while I have someone run into this problem – but it’s an easy fix. The problem is that Adobe made a couple of recent changes that are making SOME versions of SOME browsers incompatible with SOME PDF versions. So we’re going to bypass the browser. Don’t worry – it’s easy.

      Instead of clicking on the link like you normally would (with the left button on your mouse), right-click on it instead. That will pull up a little menu. Choose the option to SAVE the item (or the target, or the link – different browsers say different things, but it will be clear that you are SAVING, not opening). It might give you an option to choose where you want it saved. I usually just choose the desktop, because that makes it easy for me to find it.

      AFTER you’ve saved it, THEN open it by clicking the link on your computer instead of the one in the blog post. It should open right up.
