Peter Rabbit will be delighted when he sees your windows on Easter morning and the youngsters will have a ball helping make this fun craft.
Decide on an egg size and draw an egg pattern onto a piece of paper or cardboard and cut it out.
Inter-Fuse has a melting substance on both sides so all you have to do is make sandwiches with it in the middle and two fabrics on both sides.
Make sure your fabrics are right side out and fuse together. They don't have to be the same fabric; the fused pieces just need to be big enough to trace your egg pattern onto.
After you get your fabric and interfacing fused trace your egg pattern onto the fabric. Cut them out just inside your traced line.
Hang the curtain from a piece of thread from tacks in the window frame behind your blinds so when you pull the blinds or move them they won't hit your "egg curtain".
Put the string up over one tack, thread various lengths of knotted string over the main hanging string until you have enough to attach the eggs to.
Staple the eggs to the other end of the strings. After you get all of your eggs stapled on you can slide them up or down the string and they will hold. Double some up when you feel like it at various lengths.
Cut the extra string off at the bottom of the eggs and your "egg curtain" is ready for Peter Rabbit.
Why not make the shape of a rabbit or chick and slip onto one of the strings for fun. Let the kids help cut out the eggs, after all no two eggs are the same shape.
You could do the same thing with blown eggs and yarn of different colors, just tie a knot in the yarn on the bottom of the egg. A long needle made from wire will direct your yarn through the egg.
