Easter Egg Swap

Reading Carla's blog reminded me I hadn't shared pictures of the eggs I made for the Thimble Prims swap.

Paper mache eggs covered with vintage paper,
seam binding, sequins and a feather or two.
A bit of vintage lace and button,
the opening is surrounded by tinted tinsel.
Tucked inside is a pretty little lady

I made 8 eggs total each one little different. My only concern is that they are a bit delicate..oh I hope they make it ok. In a few weeks I should have my swapped eggs to share... or maybe a returned box of scrambled eggs :-O

It is a beautifull egg- I love how you folded the seam binding, and added buttons- and the tinted tinsel looks great around the opening, complementing the colors so beautifully.
Your swap partners will be so happy.

Oh my, Angie! What a beautiful work of art. Just gorgeous. I soooo hope I get one of your eggs. I can't wait to see all the eggs that everyone created for the swap. I'm sure yours will be right up among the "best in show"!

Thanks for sharing.
