This Easter Egg Felt Treat Pouch Project is so darn adorable I could scream!! These are exactly the type of crafts I would have killed for when my boys were younger and bored at least once an hour. I also love that each pouch holds one treat. Giving you a cute way to restrict how many pieces of Easter candy your kids have. I like to do a nice mix of candy and inexpensive cute toys. Please see my 15 Items to Add to your Child’s Easter Basket for some really cute gift ideas.
I have provided great photographed step by step instructions to make this craft simple for you to duplicate. Keep reading till you get to the bottom and you will also find a printable template.
List of Supplies:
- Felt fabric – color of your choice
- Scrap felt fabrics – 3-4 different colors
- Matching thread and needle
- Pencil – to trace the template
Prepare the patterns from the template by printing them into your required size and cutting out. The template includes a whole egg pattern, a half egg pattern, and 4 different shapes. You can also create your own custom shapes. Trace the 2 parts of the egg patterns on the selected felt fabric. Cut out the small shape patterns from different colored scrap felt fabrics.
Prepare needle and thread and take the smaller part of the egg pouch pattern. Start stitching the small shape patterns on this piece from the top edge. I simply placed the shapes on the piece and did running stitch over them to attach with the pouch pattern.
Stitch each line of shapes horizontally on the egg pouch pattern.
Stitch as many lines of shapes as required to fill the pattern.
Now take the whole egg pattern and place the smaller (patterned) one on the top of the whole egg pattern; match the bottom ends of both pieces. Now simply stitch around the sides to join both pieces but make sure to keep the top side of the smaller pattern open. After done stitching tie a tight knot and cut off extra thread.
Place the treats in the egg pouch and done!
Use different colored felt fabrics and different shape cutouts for more variation.
