1. Trace and transfer the egg cosy template to your chosen fabrics and cut out to make front, back and linings. Cut a contrasting panel for the front. Machine stitch the contrasting panel and ribbon trim to the egg cosy front.
2. Place the front and back, right sides up, onto the glue side of the fusible webbing and cut out roughly. Place a clean cloth over and press to attach the webbing. Trim neatly.
3. Pin the cosy front and back together, right sides facing. Insert and pin a loop of ribbon between the top seams, facing inwards.
4. Machine stitch together, using a 1cm (3?8in) seam allowance. Trim the seams and turn through the cosy to the right side. Pin the lining front and back together and machine stitch around the sides using a 1cm (3?8in) seam allowance. Trim seams. Leave the lining inside out.
5. Pull the lining over the cosy, then pin the lower edges together, matching raw edges. Machine stitch around the lower edge, leaving a gap to turn the cosy through. Turn through, then slip stitch the opening closed, using small, neat stitches.
