Happy Ostara (also known as the Spring equinox)! I had all of the items for my children’s Ostara baskets finished long ago, including some handmade playfood and a handmade tea set which will be showing up here in the next couple of weeks. Earlier this week, I came across these wonderful sewn eggs that Kim at Retro-Mama posted about. They reminded me a bit of pysanky eggs, so I had to whip a few (or 15) up this week. They are really easy to make, especially with Kim’s pattern. I used scrap fabric I already had on hand. If I were purchasing fabric for these, I would have chosen different fabrics to play up the mock pysanky effect. I don’t think my children will mind, though.
