Make These Cute Egg Cozies
These little egg cozies will keep your boiled eggs warm during your Easter brunch. They are really easy to make and you can jazz them up in any way you like: mix and match different fabrics, embroider little flowers, animals, add the first letter of the name of your loved ones, add bunny ears and a little tale…
I’m making them for my friend that owns a bed and breakfast. She is making a lot of eggs and the guests aren’t always at the breakfast table on time so keeping those eggs warm is important for her.
I’m adding a little pattern that you can download and print, but before you do so, check the width of your egg cups if you want the cozy to fit over the cup. The pattern here is made for cups that are about 2 ¼ inch wide.
If you are making multiple egg cozies, I would copy the pattern on a little piece of cardboard. That makes copying the pattern on your fabric pieces a lot easier.
-Fabric scraps of at least 4 ½ by 4 ½ inch, 4 pieces (2 for the outer fabric and 2 for the lining)
-⅛ inch thick batting (cotton or polyester)
-1 little strip of twill tape or some other ribbon, 1-2 inches
-The pattern, download the PDF HERE and print it out.
1. Copy the pattern on your fabric pieces and cut out
- 2 pieces for the outside of the cozie
- 2 pieces for the inside of the cozie
- 2 pieces of the batting

2. Baste stitch or fuse the batting on the wrong side of the 2 lining fabric pieces. You can also skip this step and go to step 3, grabbing all 4 layers at once in this order: batting-lining-lining-batting
3. Sew the curved side of the interior fabric together, wrong sides facing each other. Leave the straight side open and leave a turning hole of 1 inch and a half in the curved side as well. Trim the edges as much as you can. That will make the end result a lot cleaner and professional looking.
4. Position and pin the piece of ribbon on one of the outer fabric pieces, double folded, raw edges matching. Sew it attached on that piece or pin and grab it when you sew the 2 layers in step 5.

5. Sew the 2 sides of the outer fabric together, wrong sides facing each other, grabbing the raw edges of the ribbon as well.
6. Put the outer and inner fabric pieces together, right sides facing each other. The outer fabric is on the outside, wrong sides out. The lining is on the inside, batting facing inward. Sew the bottom side together all the way around.
7. Trim the edges and turn the fabric right side out through the turning hole of the lining.
8. Put the outer fabric inside the lining to close the turning hole. Do this with a ladder stitch by hand. I have a ladder stitch tutorial here if you don’t know how to do this.
9. Push the lining inside the outer fabric and press.
10. You can stop here or you can pull the lining a little towards the outside, about ⅛ of an inch and topstitch in the crease (where the Lining and outer fabric meet) all around so you can see the lining.
Your egg cozy is ready!
