2. Sewing ideas for Easter: Sewing small Easter gifts

Inspired by these current trends, in this chapter we present you with sewing ideas for Easter that are quick and easy to sew. They are perfect if you want to sew Easter gifts to put in your loved ones’ Easter nests.

Embroider accessories

The easiest way to implement the flowery rose trend is with embroidery. Grab a small accessory such as a bag, purse, key ring or scarf and embroider it with a rose motif. To make a simple rose, proceed as follows using an embroidery technique:

Step 1: Draw a circle on the fabric with a heat-sensitive pen to mark your rose.

Step 2: Insert your needle into the center of the circle and make a straight stitch to the edge of the circle.

Step 3: Make 5 straight stitches from the center of the circle to the edge to create a “wagon wheel” look. These stitches will not be visible afterwards, but it is still advisable to use the same yarn color as for the rose.

Step 4: Start weaving the yarn thread over and under the straight stitches. Work from the inside out to create the rose.

Step 5: Place your work on the radiator or use a hair dryer to remove any marker residue that is still visible.
