Last year I woke up in the middle of the night and had an idea for a Heart Pouch that works up in one piece. And the only sewing required was to sew on a button. It was one of those random moments. I hadn’t planned on doing such a pattern, but it worked!
Not long after that I set out to make a one piece Easter Egg Pouch. I mean, how hard could it be? I conceptualized the Heart Pouch in bed one night and had it made the next morning. Well, I was so wrong. Getting the shape and opening correct proved to be much harder, despite how much simpler the shape of an egg seems. So unfortunately I had to put it aside.
I decided to give it another go this year. A fresh set of eyes and a new perspective was just what I needed! I changed almost everything from the starting count, to where the decreases were and it worked!
These pouches measure approximately 4 inches at the widest part by 5 inches high when using worsted weight yarn. When tested, some came out slightly smaller, but still comfortably fit a gift card and other small goodies.
Here are some of the Easter Egg Pouches that others have made….
Christi of Hugs An Stitches on Instagram made hers in cotton yarn and our Easter Gnome Buttons. Though they come out just a bit smaller in worsted weight cotton yarn, they are still big enough for a gift card and other small treats.
