Simple Easter decor is my favorite. This Easter Egg pillow is a quick project with very satisfying results especially if you use fabrics as lovely as these Milk and Honey fabrics by Elea Lutz.

Easter Egg Pillow Tutorial


easter eggs pattern

  • Fabric –
    • small pieces for eggs
    • 7 1/2″ X 19 1/2″ piece of white fabric for the pillow center
    • 1/4 yard fabric for border of the pillow
    • 1/2 yard fabric for pillow back
  • 12″ X 24″ pillow form

Prepare Eggs for applique

  1. Print off the egg pattern (or trace it) onto the paper side of the Heat n Bond Featherlite.
  2. Cut out around each egg, leaving a slight margin around each one.
  3. Fuse the egg to the wrong side of the fabric chosen for the egg.
  4. Cut out the egg on the traced/printed line.
  5. Remove the paper backing from the egg. Set aside the eggs.

Sew Pillow front

*note: the fabric in the final pillow is different from this picture because I realized that there wasn’t enough contrast between the center panel and the eggs.

  1. Cut out border strips:
    1. Cut 2 strips 3″ X 19 1/2″
    2. Cut 2 strips 3″ X 12 1/2″
  2. Sew the 3″ X 19 1/2″ border strips to the top and bottom of the center strip.
  3. Press the border strips away from the center of the pillow.
  4. Sew the side border strips to the pillow front.
  5. Press the border strips away from the center of the pillow.

Add Applique Eggs

  • Position the eggs in the center of the pillow front. Mine was 1 1/2″ in from each side, with 1 1/4″ in between each egg and 1 1/2″ from top and bottom.
  • Fuse the eggs to the center of the pillow front.
  • Use a narrow zig-zag stitch to stitch around each of the eggs.

Finish the Easter Egg Pillow

  • Cut a piece of fusible fleece to 12 1/4″ X 24 1/4″.
  • Fuse the fleece to the back of the pillow front.
  • If desired add quilting to the pillow front.
  • Create a pillow back using your method of choice. I used my zipper in the bottom seam method.
  • Sew your pillow front to the pillow back.
  • Add your pillow form.
  • Enjoy!!

I have already had a couple of my children lay claim to this pillow, but I think it’s going to live in my room so I can enjoy it!

The burst of spring in my house is really welcome since winter is still trying to hold on here where I live. Are you ready for spring? I’d love to hear!

If you’d like to add some more spring decorations to your house, I have a really fun Springtime Showers Mini Quilt on my blog Ameroonie Designs. Happy Sewing friends! xoxo, Amy

    Great pattern! I had never used appliqué before this, but it was easy to learn. The measurements were exact and it only took about three hours to finish as a beginner sewer (and I also hand sewed the entire project.) Thanks for sharing!
