No Sew Easter Egg Book

No Sew Easter Egg Book

Add a few handmades to your child's Easter basket this season. Easy Easter crafts are a quick and easy way to get in the spirit of this lovely spring holiday. Make a No Sew Easter Egg Book from Lisa Fulmer out of fabric and felt but save your needle and thread for another day.


 

Materials:

  • Print and solid fabrics
  • Fusible web
  • Iron and ironing pad
  • Matching colors of felt
  • Variety of ribbons
  • Cardstock trimmed to one small and one large egg shape
  • Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Peel-n-Stick Sheets
  • Rotary cutter with pinking blade
  • Cutting mat and ruler
  • Scissors
  • Fabric marker
  • Sewing machine and/or embroidery floss and needle
  • Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue

Instructions:

  1. Trim pieces of print fabric for cover and solid fabric for inside pages to 9″ x 12″ with rotary cutter.
     
  2. Fold each piece in half to 6″ x 9″ and press the fold.
     
  3. Sandwich some fusible web between the wrong side of print fabric cover and one of the solid fabric pages and press with dry iron on high heat until fused.
     
  4. Optional – machine stitch around the edges of the cover after fusing.
     
  5. Peel bottom liner off a sheet of Fabric Fusion and apply the sticky side to a piece of fabric.
     
  6. Use cardstock template to trace a small egg shape on the top liner of the Fabric Fusion, then trim the liner/fabric into the egg shape.
     
  7. Peel back the top liner and carefully finger-press ribbon strips across the fabric egg on the sticky side, nested closely together.
     
  8. Trim the edges of the ribbons flush with the edge of the fabric egg.
     
  9. Use another sheet of Fabric Fusion to adhere the ribbon egg in position on the book cover.
     
  10. Use cardstock template to trace the large egg shape on to several pieces of felt and trim out.
     
  11. Use scraps of the Fabric Fusion to adhere a felt egg to the center of each page.
     
  12. Optional – machine stitch or hand embroider around the edges of the eggs to further secure them to the page on both sides.
     
  13. Trim out various shapes and strips of different colors of felt for decorating the eggs – kids can glue the shapes in place permanently when desired.
     
  14. Write a greeting or special message inside the front cover with fabric marker and glue felt shapes around it to embellish.
     
  15. Lay the page spreads on top of the cover spread with folds aligned in the center, then machine or hand stitch down the fold line.
