The only kind of Easter Eggs mew'll want this Sunday! MOL 

What Mew Will Need:

cotton Fabric, we used a selection of fat quarters in different prints

lining fabric [optional]

needle, thread ~ optional sewing machine



a great big pile of catnip

Optional Bunny ~ Blossom was today's Craft Room Snoopervisor

Let's Get Started

Crafting with Cats Easter Special ©BionicBasil® Catnip Easter Eggs Steps 1 - 4
1.  We're making six eggs, and here's our fabric choices fur 4 of our eggs

2. And here's our fabric choice fur the last two

3. Cut out your egg shapes - ours are approx 7" tall by 5" at the widest part prior to sewing

4.  Check with optional bunny to make sure they meet FULL BUNNY approval

5. Cut out lining fabric and place either side of your patterned fabric

6. Pin eggs together ready fur sewing [right sides together]

7. Sew, either by hand or machine, leaving a gap fur the stuffing at the bottom

8. Your egg/s should now look something like this

9. Turn fabric right sides out and get FULL BUNNY approval before continuing

10. This is one side of our eggs

11. This is the other side

12. Now stuff with primo catnip - we used our homegrown, organic primo nip in our eggs.  And used a ratio of 1/4 stuffing/wadding to 3/4 catnip to fill them - that way the eggs are springy but are really stuffed to the brim with the primo stuff making sure they're extra fragrant and delicious, as nopurrdy wants a BAD EGG! MOL

13. Once your eggs are fully stuffed, hand sew the fabric opening together

14. Now mew should have something that looks like this, with FULL BUNNY approval

Now we're at the critical stage of testing, so what did Smooch think?

As mew can see there was no stopping him, the eggs were amazing and Smooch said, "Dudes these Easter Eggs are eggstraspecially nip'a'licious!" MOL

In fact the P.A. had to remove him from the room as he went a little wild and refused to share with anypurrdy else, I think that's because the P.A. used a special combo of Catnip and Catmint that we affectionately refer to as Psychedelic Puma Blend - OOPS - so maybe not fur newbies like young Melvyn

So there mew have it, straight from Smooch; catnip eggs are the best, make some, get some, try some this Easter and don't miss out on the fun! MOL 

Happy Easter!
