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!

The heart pouch works up in one piece and is seamless. And will even fit a fun patch on the back side!

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!

Change the look of the egg pouch pattern by using solid or variegated yarn.
These can be made as plain or as fancy as you wish! You can easily stripe the pattern or use pretty variegated yarn.

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….

Red Heart Retro Stripes makes adorable Easter Egg Pouches!

These two made by Amanda of Amanda’s Crafts on instagram worked up beautifully in Red Heart Retro Stripes! Amanda also used bunny buttons that can be found in our Etsy Shop.

The Easter Egg Pouch Pattern works well in cotton yarn too!

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.

You can find finished Easter Egg Pouches for purchase in Christi’s Etsy Shop.
