Mini Paper Pieced Egg

 Mini Paper Pieced Egg There is always time for a last minute gift, and you can whip this sweet egg up in no time! SEWING TIPS; When sewing the binding around the egg, begin sewing on the side or bottom, gently “guide” the binding in (no pull but gently push) around the curves. You can find full instructions for making this heart on my YouTube Channel - BerryBirdy. or IG @Berry_Birdy Paper pieced pattern can be found at the end of the instructions. Instructions; Photocopy and cut out the rectangle template. (You will cut out the egg shape later on in the sewing process.) 1. Shorten your stitch length to 1.5 - 1.8mm.  2. Beginning in the centre of the egg (the tiny square), gather two  pieces of fabric and place them with right sides together. The  pieces need to be slightly larger than the centre square areas   (about 3/4” X 3/4”). Place the pieces on the wrong side of  the template (the back of the paper). Pin in place. Hint; It can be helpful  to hold it
