Craft egg & bacon taught me patience

“Klutz has beaut kits for crafting mini food treats or mini animals! Just “google” or search Klutz “Sew Mini Treats” or “Klutz Sew Mini Animals” for where to buy a kit from.

On Easter Monday, my sister and I made “egg and bacon.” The egg with the large rosy cheeks was poached by my sister, although I forgot to tell her she could use the tiny pre-cut pink cheeks!

I patiently put together the Bacon, mind you I only did one Rasher with just one streaky strip of white fat (straight down the middle).

Two important things that I’ll point out about this Kit, is that the needles which come with it, are far too large, for pushing through the felt. You will need to get a finer needle from your own sewing set or buy one.

Also, the ply comes in 6 ply, and you need to separate out one fine strand from a bundle of colored ply, then gently pull on it and pull it away from the rest of the ply.

I find it best to measure the edges of the sewing area and use triple the amount of thread, but you may have to be careful and hold your thread straight and observe it, otherwise it may knot!
