It's an aeridini egg shaped from the kid's clay you can get at Dollar General and then I cut rose petals into shape and glued them on.

I made a Ferrikki egg! With knitting and feathers made from embroidery thread.

I got the idea when I remembered feathers I'd made from yarn for a different project. I thought embroidery thread would be a pretty choice, and I decided to make a Ferrikki egg. I was inspired by the Easter Sunrise theme's egg colors, but I took some creative liberties.

(I keep taking these pictures at night, which means the light isn't great...keeps making the pictures cool-toned and a bit dim.)


A look at my materials. I ended up using more yarn and thread colors in the end.


I began knitting an egg in the round on double-pointed needles. I used a pattern from oddknit.com, although I changed it by added loop stitch to it, and by changing the sizing a bit in the end. And adding color changes to it, as well.


The knitting is coming along. Somehow, the finished egg was quite a bit bigger than I anticipated. It kept growing so much, I undid some of my work and changed the pattern to reduce it a bit.


Meanwhile, I making the feathers by knotting strands of embroidery thread around a core of wire (so I can shape the feathers), and some wool thread for grip.


I now have a finished egg that looks wooly with all the loops I knitted into it! (Looks like the egg a sheep Sylesti might have!) Now, why did I put loops on my egg?


Why, so I could cut them--


--unravel the pieces, and brush them to make a properly furry egg! I just used a regular hairbrush for this. (Got some interestingly colored leftover fluff from this process.) Just as a fun fact, I used plastic bags as stuffing in this for bulk, because it would have taken a lot of regular stuffing to fill the egg.


I ended up making four feathers (one of them a little baby feather) before I ran out of time and embroidery thread. I stitched them on to the egg, and tried to arrange them neatly for the photos. I was...partially successful. (Maybe they need a bit of starching?)

More photos!
