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 are our fabric choices fur 4 of our eggs.

2. And here's our fabric choice for 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 an optional bunny to make sure they meet FULL BUNNY approval.

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

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

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

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

9. Turn the 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 anypawdy 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 for 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

And that pawesome furiends furry sadly brings us to the end of today's Crafting with Cats rerun, we do hope mew liked it, and we look forward to sharing more crafting exploits from BBHQ in the future!

We'll be back with more fun Easter crafts on Tuesday and do hope mew can join us then. In the meantime, we're back tomorrow with our usual Sunday Selfies post.
