Craft Preview For October 27 Issue

This week’s craft project is egg-stra special!


The Technical Stuff

This cute egg cosy is simple to make and can easily be personalised so you can make one for every member of the household.

You don’t need much to make this lovely egg cosy. Some cotton fabric, lining fabric, fusible fleece, felt, a length of embroidery thread, some ribbon and some buttons. It’s possible you will have most of the materials lying around the house.

There is nothing too difficult about making the mouse. We have included step-by-step photographs to keep you right at each stage. There are templates, too.

Why not make them for family or friends?  They are a cracking gift.
