Rag Egg Tutorial

I am lovin' these rag eggs and the most talented Melissa from Cornbreadandbeansquilting's Weblog has posted a little tutorial for those of us who are, shall we say..."not so creative"?
I have to confess I have tried these before and I have never tried making them the way she made them, hence, mine have never looked quite as cool as hers. First, let me tell you, I never thought to use a glue gun, duh! Second, I was wrapping them the other way, width-wise. Both of these little issues could have something to do with my "failure to launch" my eggs for Easter.
I LOVE homespun and save every little but I can. I use it to tie stuff, wrap fabric bundles and dress up my mason jars... I can't wait to try these. Now go get your own directions over at Melissa's blog. And LMK if you have some cool tutorial I should be checking out. God knows I need all the help I can get!

I love those! They are just too cute! I would need to make them using wood eggs to give them weight or fill the plastic ones with something that will weight the egg down. You could also use cement glue, although the glue gun would give a faster drying glue to the project.. Maybe I need to make me some?
