I unpacked these eggs today and fell in love all over again!  And since the original tutorial lies buried in an old post where it is sharing space with several other egg decorating ideas, I decided to "lift" it and give it it's very own post!

So!  Here it is again!

How To Mark Stitch Lines for Embroidery on Felted Fabric Easter Eggs (and Balls)

P1180253

Marking straight lines on felted fabrics can be a bit tricky. Chalk barely stays in place long enough to get the job done and marking pens seem to find the uneven texture a challenge. So I tried using masking tape and to my surprise it worked perfectly!

Masking tape clings just enough to stay in place while stitching and releases without pulling the fibers. I used the same pieces over and over - no need for a fresh piece each time a line needs to be marked.
