The shops have had Hot Cross buns and Easter eggs on display for weeks! Christmas was barely over before these Easter treats were displayed. I resist buying Hot Cross buns until Easter, but have indulged in purchasing some eggs; there was a reason! I found a pattern at Red Brolly for a delightful easter bag, and not because I am in a bag making mood, decided to tackle the embroidered bag. As this will go to a little boy I didn't bother with the bow on the bag.
When shopping for a backing fabric, Easter type fabrics were simply non-existent, apart from a pretty fabric in pink with chickens ... not exactly what I looked for this year. A colourful red fabric featuring chooks makes a suitable alternative!
Now to bundle the bag and eggs, with the addition of a couple of yellow chicks just bursting out of their eggs, the parcel will soon be winging its way across to my little grandson. He is really too young for chocolate Easter eggs, but as I am not the one who will need to wipe his face, hands, and whatever other part of his body he manages to smear chocolate on ... it doesn't matter. He does love chocolate!
