Felt Hen Egg Cosy / Egg Warmer

You can sew this hen and use it in different ways:

1. Create a set of these as egg cosies or egg warmers. Egg cosies are decorative and practical. After boiling an egg, place the egg inside of this felt figure to cover it and keep it hot until breakfast.
2. Another example would be to create a doll out of the pattern. Sew as written in the instructions below, stuff slightly and sew the bottom closed. It can be used to decorate Easter baskets. 
3. Create these figures for kindergarten kids to use as hand puppets.
