Today is the last day of the My Cozy Village blog tour! That means that today is also the last day to win a Free Copy of the My Cozy Village pattern pack. See the bottom of the post for entry-information.
Last week, when we started this tour on the C&T blog, I showed you the start of a little spin-off project from My Cozy Village. I was using the smaller flowers around each block to make little egg-cozies in time for Easter, or general Sunday brunches if you are so inclined.
Here are the last steps needed to make the little egg-cozies:
7) After appliquéing the flowers onto the background, line the background with a piece of batting and cut out both at the same time along the template outline. Do the same for the backside of your egg cozy.
8) Sew together a front and back side egg-cozy with batting. I used a rather generous ¼” seam-allowance. Cut little notches in the curve on top to minimize bulk when turned right side out.
9) Make a lining for each egg-cozy by tracing and cutting two egg-cozy template shapes and sewing them right side together.
10) Place the egg cozy, right side out, inside of the egg-cozy lining as shown below. Sew the two together along the raw edge on the bottom, leaving about 2-3” opening. Turn the egg-cozy out of this opening and stuff the lining into the cozy. Finger-press and fold the raw edges where the opening for turning was left. Secure these folded edges with a couple of pins. Top-stitch around the bottom of the egg-cozy about a 1/8” from the bottom.
