Last year, however, was problematic. The only Star Wars egg dye kit I could find had crayons to melt on top. OK, then. I made the eggs in advance for once and put them in the fridge, taking them out for the dyeing only to discover that the eggs had to be hot for the wax melt to work.
My only hope at this point was the internet: I went online and found a recipe for home made egg dye. I also pulled out a white crayon, surmising that I would be able to create a resist effect by drawing on the eggs before dyeing them.
Here's the result:
I used Fancy Pants Designs Park Bench Collection for this. It seems like a springy color collection, working perfectly with the colorful eggs. I added a piece from Down by the Shore because I thought I needed a more intense color, orange in this case.
Here's the details:
I made the title with the Cameo, using the font Lobster, I think. I loved using the Cameo and can't wait to use it even more.
I stitched around the photo on the mat, a delicate effect I love to use.
The stickers all seemed to fit a bit thematically, as did the yellow quote strip on the bottom.
There's my white crayon bunny! And the almost black dye. Ah, well.
I also hand stitched these circle frames, which was harder than the square. These I had to hand crank the wheel rather than using the foot to stitch. My arm was killing me by the time I was done with three circles. Once I realized that after stitching one circle, I'd already committed to the stitching and had to finish it. I added some orange cross stitched just because.

Thanks for reading about my less than perfect Easter moment last year. Hope you had a blessed, festive Easter weekend, free from egg fails!
