Crochet some of your Easter Eggs this year! It is made from 2 motifs that you then stiffen with fabric Stiffener, Fill with Easter Candy or money, and then hold the two pieces together with ribbon. Great idea and so much fun.

Rep Rnd 9 and 10.
Make a form for the egg:
I took tinfoil and made a form of an egg. Make sure it is big enough to fit the motifs snuggly.
Stiffen your egg:
Take fabric stiffener and stiffen the 2 motifs of the eggs and place them onto the egg form. And pin them down to the form.
Let your egg dry:
You can let your eggs sit overnight and completely dry or what I like to do is get out your blow-dryer and dry it that way.
Take a ribbon and weave it in any like manner though Rnd 9 on both motifs. Completely go around the egg and tie a bow and you are now finished. Don’t for get to put your treats into the egg!
