DIY Felt Egg Magnet
A few years ago, I saw a felt egg magnet on Pinterest, but the link to the tutorial was broken — so I went ahead and figured it out on my own. Isn’t just the cutest?
I made my own pattern by drawing the most simple fried egg shape and a circle for the yolk. It’s not a great pattern, but, hey, drawing perfect circles is hard, okay? You can draw your own if you like, but I’ve provided the pattern I used here.
In addition to a pattern, you’ll need a sheet of yellow felt, a sheet of white felt, black thread, white thread, a tiny bit of poly-fil stuffing, a needle, a magnet and a hot glue gun. Cut out the shapes from the pattern. Pin the paper patterns to the felt. Make sure to cut out one of the egg yolk circle (in yellow) and two of the egg white pieces (in white).
Using really small stitches, sew a face on the egg yolk.
Now sew the yolk to one of the egg white pieces, but not all the way. Once you’re 3/4 of the way finished, stuff the egg yolk with a little bit of poly-fil. Finish sewing the egg yolk to the egg white.
Now, using a blanket stitch, sew the egg white piece that has the egg yolk piece sewn on to the other egg white piece.
Grab a small magnet (I used a freebie one I got from somewhere or another) and glue it on using your hot glue gun. Easy peasy.
After it dries, you’re done! Now you can stick it on your fridge!
