I don’t know why, but every time I used to draw Easter eggs as a kid they were always zig-zaggy! I looked around for a zig-zaggy type design for an Easter egg and couldn’t find one. After quite a few tries I finally realized that simple sometimes is best and went with just a plain shell stitch, very similar in design to my Stained Glass Cross Ornament.

Pattern is fashioned like a pouch, and is closed by gathering the bottom together under the egg and tying off. This closing could be tied with a bow to make the egg removable if desired.
