Hello all! I’ve been working flat out again this week. I’m somewhat alarmed at how fast Easter is approaching! I’ve had an idea to make some Easter egg hunt baskets for a while now, but couldn’t seem to find a time to make it happen. Well, there’s nothing like a tight deadline for focusing the mind, and with just a few weeks to go the idea has finally hatched and become a reality. And what fun they were to make as well! Now I’m in so much of a springy mood I might just bounce right off into space!
They’re made in the style of handy little totes with a cheeky dollop of fake fur yarn and some Easter themed embellishments.
I crocheted carrots for the bunny…
… pretty flowers for the lamb…
… and stripy mini eggs for the chick.
But there’s no reason you can’t shake it up a little and mix and match all these embellishments to come up with your own version of the Easter bags.
I’m planning on making some extra eggs, flowers and carrots to decorate my Easter twig tree this year. I’ll post some pictures when I’m done 🙂
In the mean time I hope you’re all having lots of fun with your Easter preparations. (I’m going to start mine by eating all those foil wrapped chocolate eggs now the photos are finished!) x

Hi Ana Maria, the pattern is available as an instant digital download in my Etsy shop. It is only written in English though so I hope that is OK for you. Thanks for asking 🙂

It’s been a while since Easter but totally forgot to share with you my inspired piece I made of your chick basket. I made one for my daughter she chose (luckily for me) the chick. She loved it so much that she carries it everywhere. I didn’t buy the pattern, I used a bag and doily pattern I had and made things up as I went along. It was fun to make. Thank you for the inspiration
