Super easy to make – it really is as easy as it looks! You will need: one circle of white felt, one smaller circle of orange felt – you want your felt fried egg to be organic, right? orange and black embroidery thread a needle.

Join your white and orange felt circles with an orange thread in as small a stitch as you can manage.

Then the fun starts, give that egg a face.

This is were Eims came in.  She’s a newly minted cross stitcher.  She taught me how to do a knotless loop stitch. Yeah, it sounded hard to me too, but to make a thicker than thread face, embroidery thread secrets were required. Basically it means you don’t have to tie a knot in the end of your thread thereby avoiding unsightly and embarrassing behind the scenes threads.

Once you’ve made your first felt food item, the options are limitless! Personally, I’m thinking felt limes are the way forward. Hope the dotes like them too ❤
