I quite amazed myself a few weeks ago when I had the idea to made these fillable crochet Easter eggs. Why hadn’t I thought of this before??

I greatly dislike those cheap plastic eggs that break so easily and never seem to pop together well enough. They are broken by next year so I have to buy a new package each season. Such a waste!

These crochet Easter eggs are the answer! I decided to go with Velcro instead of buttons to eliminate any worry about the eggs being a choking hazard for the littlest egg hunters. The kids actually love the Velcro, so I think it was a good choice.

I suggest using any kind of cotton. My favorites are Shine and Comfy, for the feel and color palette, but anything you have on hand would work wonderfully.

The pattern for these crochet Easter eggs includes 2 sizes, small and large. The small is about the size of plastic eggs, and the larger ones are big enough for larger, more special treats!

  1. What a wonderful idea! So clever…gee, maybe you could do plaid eggs too LOL. Environmentally friendly too…just perfect idea! Thank you for sharing 😊

  2. I absolutely agree with you about the plastic eggs. It probably won’t happen this year because it is too late, but I am planning to do some for next year to see the reaction of the children in our church. Thank you.
