Method
Fold your felt in half.
Mark out a half egg shape.

The half egg shape needs to be larger than an egg so that it will fit over


Cut out your shape and you will have two pieces of the same size.

Put your two pieces of felt together.
Thread your needle with the orange embroidery thread and stitch the curved sides together. You can use a simple stitch by piercing through both pieces of felt and taking the thread over the edge and back through. Make sure you don't sew the straight bottom as this is where your egg will pop in.

If you're not confident about sewing, you could glue the edges together

Your baby chick is now ready to keep your boiled egg warm. What other animals could you make?
