Felt Easter Eggs

Those pesky plastic eggs are so breakable, full of chemicals (plastic) and never seem to last long. These 100% reusable, wool felt egg pockets are way better. You make them, then stuff them with candy or small Easter treats, then use them over and over again. Your child might enjoy these in her play kitchen too.  If you’d like to make some larger, more three dimensional egg pockets, try the fillable soft egg tutorial or even push yourself to try some wet felted pocket eggs.
