Carving eggs can be a lot of fun, if you get good at it and enjoy this kind of art work.
MATERIALS: be creative!
For this project I used
Goose egg, blown and cleaned- eBay
Faux silk cloth- Joan's fabrics- $7.50
Enamel paints(these work best in my opinion)-2.00
Craft hinges- Michael's- 1.50
Chain- the kind for beading/necklaces
Some kind of edging if you want
I use a Dremel, but any high-speed rotary tool will work
Various cutting/engraving bits
Charcoal or soft lead pencils
This is my first instructable so help is welcome!

Choosing an egg will decide exactly how much you can do. For this project I used a goose egg for the size and to help keep costs down. But you can use whichever kind you want, it's up to you!
