Easter Egg with Marguerites


Easter will be here soon and I have been working on eggs for the last weeks. I wanted cheery colors, a prelude to the flowers we are all hoping to enjoy soon. First, I worked on an embroidered egg, which is the subject of this post. In the picture above, you can also see bits of the Butterfly Easter Eggs I created. I will tell more about them next week.

This was a relaxing project. I started with a few rows of satin stitch, with yellow, pale orange and dark orange floss. That was the longest part of the project. After that, I made green lines on each side with the coral stitch. I love that stitch. I made the knots every 6 mm / 1/4″. That was done pretty fast. Then, I sew the beads for the flowers. That was kind of boring, but well worth the effort. The sparkle they add makes the flowers more vibrant. Lastly, I stitched the petals with the lazy daisy stitch. That stitch is quite simple but beautiful. Little effort for big results!

After that, it was a matter of assembling the front with the back and adding some details. Like more coral stitch all around the egg and my initials with a few flowers on the back.


You see the paper flowers on the right? My mother made them a few years ago and I thought they just pair so well with my eggs.

I wrote a pattern for this egg covered with marguerites. You can find it here for free, in French and in English. I really enjoyed stitching the flowers with the lazy daisy stitch. And the transparent bead at the centre of each flower adds a little something.

Have you been working on Easter projects? I would love to learn about them.
