eggs-cellent!

I am a huge fan of Poppy Treffry's work and would love to own one of her pieces, maybe the tractor handbag or a flouncy bag of my own and I love all of the cosies. I have had a go at making an egg cosy myself, based on her fantastic who's the daddy? design, with a view to making a few more as easter gifts and because we love hard boiled eggs and soldiers in this house!

The one above is made with 100% linen, lined with a brushed cotton and lightly padded with natural wool to really keep those eggs snug as a bug. This one is a little wonky as everything I do is hand-stitched {still no machine} so packed with quirky imperfections! They should get better with practice!
