I will make one and if it doesn't look good I will just go with the vertical stripes. I am excited about doing a nice tassel beneath the bands of fabric. Oooooooooooooooh, the possibilites!

The second fabric is called Pierette Mimosa and is a Robert Allen Home fabric from JoAnn's. Here it is:
One nice thing about the Robert Allen fabric is that is has this coordinating fabric that I could use to re-upholster our rocking chair. Here it is:
I decided to try and do a quick and dirty Photoshop job to give me an idea of what they would look like.
From this it seems like I should choose the Limonia Marble over the Pierette Mimosa, but sometimes this Photoshop thing makes things look weird. Let me know what you think!

I added the "Happy Easter" with a nice bevel and emboss effect in Photoshop.

They are super easy to make too! I cheated and bought a cake mix and tube icing. It turns out I should have made my own because I went to 2 grocery stores and finally to Michael's before I found chocolate tube icing. For some reason the grocery stores have every color but brown. Michael's had Wilton icing which I like because my icing tips fit onto their tubes. (The cheap plastic tips from the grocery store only fit on the skinny tubes.)
Before I did the nest icing it is best to put a layer of chocolate icing to make sure the whole cake has icing. Otherwise there might be a bare spot below the eggs and we couldn't have that!
I'll let you know how they taste. Hopefully delicious!

I normally don't do a ton of Easter decorating, but when I found these little guys at World Market I couldn't resist.
More chick decorations coming soon!
