Show off your Easter spirit with an Easter egg sweatshirt you make yourself.
What You'll Need:
Fabric: 8×10 inches multicolored print; 4×10 inches coordinating purple small print; 4×5 inches coordinating pink small print; 4×5 inches coordinating green small print
10×16-inch piece of fusible webbing
2-yard length of jumbo multicolored rickrack
Pink dimensional squeeze paint
Using the pattern you can download here, trace and cut four eggs from the multicolored fabric, two eggs from the purple fabric, one egg from the pink fabric, and one egg from the green fabric. Using the same pattern, trace and cut eight eggs from the fusible webbing.
Lay the fabric eggs on the front of the sweatshirt in different patterns until you find an arrangement you like. Use the fusible webbing to adhere the fabric eggs to the front of the shirt according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Cut seven three-inch lengths of rickrack. Arrange two lengths of rickrack on each of the pink and green eggs, and three lengths of rickrack on one of the purple eggs. Trim the rickrack ends even with the edges of the eggs, and then glue the rickrack on the eggs with washable fabric glue.
Measure the neckline and cuffs of the shirt, and then measure and cut corresponding lengths of rickrack. Glue the rickrack to the neckline and cuffs of the shirt with fabric glue so that the ends meet at the seams of the shirt.
Paint around each egg with the dimensional squeeze paint to cover the edges of the fabric; let dry.
