Crochet Easter Egg Amigurumi FREE Pattern

Updated: May 6

Easter is just around the corner and with this quarantine indoors, it can make this Easter quite different than the rest. This is why I've created this crochet Easter egg pattern. These are indoor Easter eggs that are eco-friendly; and reusable year after year. I've also re-purposed pop bottle lids to create a little shaker/rattle inside the egg for babies who aren't old enough to go Easter Egg hunting yet. If you would like to support me, you can purchase the ad-free and more detailed PDF version here. If you would like to buy the Easter Eggs for your own home decor or egg hunt, please check out my Etsy Store.
