Seuss Extravaganza: Green Eggs and Ham

I do not like them, Sam-I-am.
I do not like green eggs and ham.
Excerpt from "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr Seuss

I'm actually planning on giving these to my daughter for St. Patrick's Day, but I couldn't let this Seuss celebration pass without posting here.  After all, "Green Eggs and Ham" is a classic.


This is really simple if you want to make your own.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of the process.  The steps are pretty easy though.  This could be a great gift for a child to accompany a copy of the book.  Hmm... future birthday party gifts.

Supplies:
  • Green Felt
  • White Felt
  • Green Embroidery Floss
  • White Floss
  • Cotton Ball
  • Scissors
  • Needle
Green Egg Directions:
  • Cut two matching irregular egg shapes out of the white felt.  Cut a smaller green circle out for the yolk.
  • Stitch the green circle to one of the white pieces using the green embroidery floss, leaving a small gap.
  • Stuff in a small amount of cotton until the yolk is slightly puffy.  Finish stitching the green circle down.
  • Using the white embroidery floss, stitch the two pieces of white felt together using the blanket stitch.  Knot it off and you are done.  Wasn't that easy.
Green Ham Directions:
  • Cut two matching ham-shaped pieces from the green felt.
  • Cut a small white oval from the white felt.  Fold it in half and cut a smaller oval out so that you just have the white ring remaining.
  • Using the white embroidery floss, stitch the outside of the white oval to the green felt.  Next stitch the inside down so that it is secure.
  • Using the green embroidery floss, stitch the two pieces of green felt together using the blanket stitch. Knot it off and you are done.
Told you it was easy.  I bet you didn't even need pictures, but I'll try to remember to take them next time.

CJ- I think you out did yourself, they are soooo cute. Not sure either if I like the color but I am sure your daughter and all kids of all ages including me. Can relate to the story. It would be a wonderful birthday gift. You seem to always surprise us in your creations.

That is from Six Flags New England, Superman: Ride of Steel.

Get your pictures proper. My fave was Superman:
