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.

Motif 2: Top of egg

Rep from Base to Rnd 7;

Skip Rnd 8 completely

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!
