Before I started sewing together my egg costume, I prepared by perusing egg pictures online and by eating three eggs. (For those of you worried about my cholesterol level - it's ok, I left out the yolks.) The details are all in the planning and readiness. My dad used to say, measure twice and cut once.
Still, nothing could prepare me for the enormous lines and screaming children at the Jo-Ann Craft store. I have a newfound respect for the textile industry, Project Runway contestants, and my old home ec teacher. Sewing felt eggs is harder than it looks! At one point, I ripped out all of my uneven seams and started over again. I haven't even tackled the bacon fat yet and time is running out!
Here is the final result!
