Who doesn't love simple, fast, and cute projects. Today's post is about a nice sewing project perfect to give away to little ones. The best part: it just takes less than 30 minutes and a couple of fabric scraps. Recently I stumbled upon these adorable nesting eggs on Toddler Approved blog and could not resist the temptation to make a set. Since these are for my Little Soi, I decided going girly on the eggs fabric choice. I’m so pleased with the end result and excited on seeing how little one liked the new nesting set.
Want to take a look at the easy steps to create the cute set? Although I followed Toddler Approved's tutorial I tweaked instructions a little.
My set consist of four nesting eggs.
Fabric - I selected four different cotton prints from my stash. Scraps are ideal for these.
Felt - I used what I got on hand..in this case I used 3 different colors.
Fusible Interfacing - Pellon to provide structure to the cotton side of the eggs.
Sewing tools - machine, thread, scissors....1. First gather all your materials:
Aren’t these adorable? What other shapes would you suggest to add the fabric nesting collection? Have you tried making these? Share your photos and link back to us.

It is a cool place for little ones to see big ships. And no so little ones can get on them and feel like in an adventure of Jack and the Neverland Pirates. Also, there is a small aquarium that is nice and has a good sampling of seawater creatures such as sharks and eels. My girl was a little hesitant at first, given the dark cave like environment where the aquarium is built. But then, she wanted to "touch" all those strange friends.

Today, I am going to share a picture of a Mother's Day Floral Wreath. I believe it turned out really cute! Moreover, I just spent $5 in flowers from a dollar store. All of the other materials I already had on hand (foam for the wreath support body and ribbon).
I chose bright fuschia pink flowers and a silver tone ribbon.
It turned out really cute!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the first tutorial post here in Purple Pink Pig!
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
- Stretched Art Canvas (mine measured 16" x 20" as it was an old canvas that got a hole on it and I was looking to give it some extended life).
- Fabric (I used 22" x 26" of cotton fabric from my stash and it was enough to cover the canvas and provided 3" on each side to stretch it to the back of the canvas)
- Sandpaper (3 sheets no. 600 grit -- for metal as I was told by my Dear H...again I used this as it was what I got on hand. You may try with any real thin sandpaper sheet you find)
- Baby Wipes Lids (Mine are from Costco Kirkland Brand baby wipes. I used 18 for this project)
9. Place the foamy at the bottom of the lid, open the lid and draw a diamond shape as figure below (my diamond lines extend about 1/2" to the center of the lid.
16. It is good to ask you quality control representative to inspect all parts before completing the last couple of steps.
