Pattern Description:

Get Ready for Spring!

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!

Difficulty: Beginner

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.

Without the wings, the birds become cute jellybeans - make them in all colors.
