Egg Door Decoration Tutorial

My niece, Michele, and I made these Easter egg door decorations when we visited my sister in Pennsylvania.
Michele made the pattern for the large egg.
We used cardboard from a new cardboard box which I bought to give the door decoration a stiff background.
Michele cut out the egg  shape from the cardboard with a utility knife.
We covered the cardboard egg with polyester batting using hot glue to give it a softer rounder look.
Then we covered the egg with fabric also using hot glue to adhere the fabric to the cardboard.  Here are some of the fabrics we used.
Michele chose a brighter pink than I did. Oh, I definitely like hers better. We made four altogether. One for Carol, Mom, Michele, and me.  Here Michele is making the pocket with a coordinating fabric. At this point - before I glued the back down - I filled the "egg" with polyfil to round it out a bit.
Here is the one we made for Mom in softer colors. See the pocket?
This is Michele’s bright one.
Here’s the back. I glued felt and a ribbon hanger on the back.
Isn’t this pretty? I love these soft roses. This is Mom’s. Love these soft roses.
Here is the one we made for Carol.
We’re really happy the way the Egg Door Decorations turned out and I hope everyone enjoyed this tutorial. Thanks for visiting.
Best wishes, Linda
