Sunny Side Up Eggs

Cut out two egg whites from white felt and two yolks from yellow felt. One of the egg white pieces will be the back of the egg and the other will serve at the front of the egg.

Finishing the Egg

Banana Slices

You'll need two pieces of ivory felt to form each banana slice -- one for the front side and one for the back side. To create the details, stitch three lines with light brown colored embroidery thread and three french knots with a brown colored embroidery thread onto the front side of one piece of felt for a realistic looking banana slice.

Assembling the Bacon

Cut the felt pieces needed to assemble bacon from the provided template. Stitch the first three layers of bacon together using a simple stitch and alternating the color of the embroidery thread to match the color of the layer. Start by sewing the smallest layer onto the second smallest layer and sew those two layers to one of the base layers. When you've stitched the first three pieces together, you're almost ready to stitch that piece to the fourth piece.

Finished Bacon

Before you finish stitching the layered assemblage to the final base layer, insert a piece of floral wire. The wire will help make the bacon look crinkly and crunchy. The bacon does not require any stuffing.
