Hollie Keith's book, So Jane has many ideas for adding a little Jane to your life. Her Jane Austen inspired Egg Cosy was sweet, but appliqued with flowers. It inspired me to create a truly Jane cosy to bring a little Austen to your breakfast table. To create this little cosy, you will need both colored and black felt along with scissors (pinking shears make a cute edge), embroidery floss, a needle, fabric glue and a few inches of coordinating ribbon. Print the Egg Cosy PDF pattern. Cut two half round pieces and one silhouetter per cosy. Lay the two pieces on top of each other with the ribbon looped and fitted between them, as shown. Using the embroidery floss, stitch around the cosy using a running stitch with a 1/8" seam allowance. A blanket stitch also makes a nice edge. Glue silhouette to center front of cosy.
