Felt Easter Eggs

I cringe when I think of the amount of chocolate my little guy consumed last Easter. The Grandparents love to give him candy...and then leave us to deal with the sugar highs ; ) Now I am not going to deprive him of his Easter chocolates, but I wanted to think of a non-candy treat to include in the Big Egg Hunt. He loves little matchbox cars but they don't fit in the plastic eggs I have...so I came up with these felt egg pouches.






They are so easy to make! I just cut egg shapes out of felt and then sewed on ribbon and felt embellishments. I stitched 2 felt pieces together leaving an opening at the top and added velcro to close them. The possibilities are endless...you could even skip the sewing and use hot glue / fabric glue!









An easy alternative to candy that can be made in any size!

Linking up here!

  2. I know what you mean about getting too much candy from the grandparents! Lotte won't be getting any candy from the Easter Bunny at our house this year! We had a talk and her eggs and basket will be filled with goldfish type bunnies from Annies, fruit snacks and little toys. Love the little felt egg pouch idea!
