Inside Yolk

On to the second egg. Pink this time.
The unsewn ends are where the flowers go
My second doodle went together, minus the flowers, much easier. So there's a re-think involved in the first eggs construction.
I added the flowers to the green egg. Then I ironed it. But, the curls still have puckers. I cut bias strips but I may have to go back and just cut the pieces out like regular applique.
The pink egg is dainty compared to the green egg, a re-think is in order
I also may change the first egg color. In certain lights it looks fine. But most of the time it looks washed out. So I just may change to a soft blue, or turquoise.
The last egg will be lavender, so whatever color I choice, it just needs to match and look like a dyed Easter egg.
I'm kind of excited by my doodles coming to life. Now I need to really think about what they will be when it grows up. I found an $8 frame at Michaels, and I thought I'd frame them. But now I think maybe they should be a fancy pillow? Maybe they will speak louder as they grow.

Take care, Brandie
