Crocheted Easter Eggs

 The perfect project for your yarn scraps: crocheted Easter Eggs. These look great in a basket, perfect for baby to play with and little ones to toss around.

I started with 3 chain and then joined, making 6 single crochet in the ring.  Adding rows increasing 1 stitch every other chain until the broadest part of the egg is formed.  Then I crocheted a couple of rows and started decreasing the next rows by single crocheting 2 chain at a time every other chain stitch until the tapered end of the egg was formed. Stuff the egg with fiber fill as you decrease the stitches.  Pull yarn through remaining 3 sts and pull end of yarn through egg.

These were so easy to make and a perfect little something for my great granddaughter Sofiah's Easter basket.  Washable and dryer safe.

Spring is coming for sure and I was thinking garlands and greeting cards.  I cut out Swallow shapes from colorful scrapbook papers and made garlands and greeting cards.

Cards with Swallows on them, ribbon bows and cut with scalloped craft scissors. 

I added sayings that I typed out on the computer and cut them out with the scalloped scissors also. 

Envelopes made from last year's Calendar pages-just fold and glue sides. 
Garland of Swallow cut outs glued to a ribbon for over doorways or across shelves, mantel, bedroom valances.  Thank you for coming and do visit again soon!  Leave a comment, I love reading them!
