Make a whole flock of little birds and eggs in all colors. This cute little bird is ready to welcome spring! He works up very quickly and is great for Easter baskets and spring decor. These would also make lovely handmade party favors especially for a bird-themed party. Why not gift someone with a filled egg pocket? The gift egg is a good way to become familiar with crocheting in the round if you haven't before and works up in very little time.
You can place candy, tiny trinkets, money and even a gift card into this cute little hollow egg! And they are Eco-friendly because they can be used again. Maybe an egg cozy too? Just leave the hole wide enough for your egg to fit. Try with a plastic egg. It is a perfect home for money, even a small doll or favorite action figure. It can become a pocket within a pocket. Add it as the golden prize of your Easter egg hunt!
This is the perfect little 1 to 2 hour project that is fun and so easy. There are so many ways this little egg can be used! Use any color you like. They are good all year round for gifts. Embellish it with any applique for a personalized gift.
Fill them with small treasures.
They make perfect little pockets
They are planet-friendly and reusable.
They can also be washed on the delicate cycle.
I'm sure you will think of new ways to use this gift egg! Add eyes or other decorative beads.
GREAT STASH BUSTER!
Make some for classmates, teachers, or at home to decorate for a memorable keepsake. Cute as Valentine presents too.
Without the wings, the birds become cute jellybeans - make them in all colors.
No gauge necessary. You can also make it larger or even smaller depending on the yarn and size hook you use.
Different size eggs would look great in a basket.
This would even make a cute small doll cradle.

Hi there! My name is Heidi and I've been crafting since I can remember and have tried many types of creative arts. I have an extreme need to create! Crochet is my absolute favorite- I can't seem to get enough crochet time! I also enjoy using other textiles as well. I am having so much fun imagining, designing and creating patterns for unique and useful items for the family - fun, original patterns with a touch of whimsy! My four terrific kids and God's wonderful world around me are my constant inspiration.
I write my patterns to be easy to read, easy to follow especially for beginners. Photos included. I hope you are inspired to create something special. Handmade treasures are gifts from the heart (as you already know).
More fun patterns coming soon as time allows! If you ever have any questions about any of my patterns, I am happy to help. Thank you for looking!
