Crochet Easter Rabbit Ear Eggs With Hidden Storage Pattern – Perfect Easter Gift.

I always need gifts at Easter and try and to come up with something different each year. This year I’ve gone for a egg theme and have made an egg with Easter rabbit ear details! I’ve got a few more egg themed ideas in the works too!

These little eggs are not stuffed and have a hidden compartment at their base so you can hide some mini eggs inside – or even a Creme egg. The hidden compartment also has a flap which covers the base so you won’t loose anything out of it, and rather than using a button to secure the flap when it a closed the rabbits pom pom tail is used instead.

Finished size (excluding ears):

  • 8cm tall.
  • 4.5cm at the eggs widest point.
