Spring Fling

Spring Fling Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

Make this adorable felt egg to replace their sugary counterparts or to decorate your home with a touch of spring. A little basket or bird's nest is the perfect way to display these delicate beauties.

Step one: Mark the center bottom of the felt egg with a pencil. Cut a length of Kelly green Silamide beading thread that you are comfortable working with and stitch and knot it to the bottom center of the felt egg. We used approximately 1½ feet and then added more when necessary. Add twenty-nine 11/0 frosted silver-lined grass green Tohos, lay the strand of beads on the felt egg and stitch and knot it where the beads end. Run the thread back through all the Tohos to the bottom center and knot. Repeat four times so that you end up with a flower stem on four sides of the egg.

Step two: Follow the same directions in step one but this time use twenty-two green Tohos to make a shorter flower stem to go in between each long one.

Step three: Using the white Silamide beading thread, stitch and knot the thread to the top of one of the flower stems. Add a matte crystal resin daisy flower and 8/0 opaque dark yellow Toho. Go back through the flower and knot. Repeat for all the flowers.

Step four: Sew the antique silver honey bee bead to the felt egg.
