Can you believe it’s Holy week already and Easter is next Sunday?! April seems to be absolutely flying by so far. I for one am very excited to welcome Easter (and sunnier, spring-like weather) and celebrate the resurrection of Christ with a warm cup of tea and a box of chocolate! I don’t drink tea or eat chocolate during Lent, so Easter Sunday is always made extra special by indulging in favourite treats again. Only a few more days to wait now, so in the meantime…I’ve been stitching flowery Easter eggs! Next to eating them, stitching them is best, right?
I have my sweet Mom to thank for this lovely idea. She thought it would be great if I added a few Easter-themed embroidery pattern to the shop. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to make it since it was already late March and I was still immersed in embroidering this robin…
…but he is taking quite a long time, and I doubted he’d be done in time for Easter. So when Mom suggested embroidering Easter eggs, it seemed like the perfect idea to add new products to the shop and take a little break from my feathery friend. I’ve always loved painting eggs, so I thought why not come up with some cute designs and embroider them instead? I’m much better at embroidery than painting, anyways!
Floral Easter Eggs
So the embroideries quickly took form, but I found it a bit odd just to have a decorative egg by itself on the fabric. It would look much better as a decoration! Which is why I transformed them into little hanging ornaments, perfect for a touch of Easter decor, and perfect to keep throughout Spring as well!
Aren’t they just adorable? They’re available as PDF downloads in my shop so that you can make your own! All three designs are beginner-friendly and quick to stitch. Each pattern also includes a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the ornament. It’s really easy, and all you need in addition to embroidery supplies are a piece of felt, ribbon, some cardboard, and hand-sewing needle & thread.
You’ll have these whipped up in no time, just in time for Easter!

This lovely meadow was such a joy to embroider, and is very easy to personalize. Follow the pattern or create your own!
And finally, this lovely pansy stitched on a soft background. This one has the fun addition of using DMC Light Effects thread, which creates a beautiful shine. Also a beginner-friendly pattern, using few stitches but featuring lovely little details.
Which one is your favourite?
If you love them all and want to purchase all three designs, be sure to do so through this listing! I created a little bundle so you can have all three patterns for less the price of two.
I hope you enjoy these floral Easter eggs my dear friends! Are flowers already blooming in your garden? We’ve started sowing many flowers and vegetables inside, but it will be a couple more weeks before things bloom in earnest. At least the birds are singing happily, and it hasn’t snowed in over a week!
I look forward to chatting with you all again after Easter, cup of tea and chocolate eggs at hand. 😉
