Fabric Scraps Easter Grass

Today was one of those days when inspiration smacked me in the face.  I've been wanting to make these fabric eggs for a while, but was unsure of what I wanted to do with them.  Then I remembered that I had a chicken wire basket, and the light bulb turned on.  Fabric eggs need fabric Easter grass!

I went to my stash and picked fabrics scraps.  I heavily starched scraps of fabric and cut them into 1/4 inch strips.  Voila!  Easter grass.

Then there was more looking at my scraps to come up with fabrics for the eggs to grace the grass.  I cut some fabric and made one to see how it would look.  I plopped this one into the fabric grass for a picture, but I still need to hand sew the opening.  So far I am really liking the result!

My goal is to soon add a picture with more eggs in the basket, but with the way my day job is going, that may or may not happen.
