This Easter I decided to make little yarny gifts for the children in my family to accompany their chocolate Easter eggs.
For the girls I made them little bunnies as featured in previous posts (click on the bunnies to take you to the relevant post).
For the boys I wanted to make them something a bit quirky. I found a pattern for some crochet eggs on the Toft Alpaca Shop website. Once they were made I thought that I would add some personalisation by sewing on each boys initial to their own egg.
For my nephew Charlie, his mother (my sister), had requested I crochet something she had seen I had pinned on Pinterest. It was a crochet minion granny square from Repeat Crafter Me.
This pattern was simple to follow and the block was surprisingly easy to make. The only difference is that instead of using a black button for the eye I crocheted a black circle.
Now the plan was to make the block into something so I asked Charlie if he’d like it made into a little cushion or a blanket and he said no that he liked it as it was. Well lucky me that’s saved me a lot of work and he has ended up with a gift just as he wanted.
I hope you all had a lovely Easter break.
