Needle Felted Egg

My cousin's daughter Mary is having her first Easter this year, and my mother wanted to give her a little present. We found a cute egg cup, and wanted to put a chocolate egg in it, but bizarrely we just couldn't find an egg-sized chocolate egg – so I felted one instead. I didn't want it to be a huge exercise, so I cheated a bit. Most of this is a polystyrene egg, I've just felted on top of that as decoration:

While the front of the egg features a bunny, the back has the letter 'M', for Mary:

And there are spots to match the egg cup:
