Easter Egg Pocket with Bunny & Chick Crochet Pattern

Do you ever see a craft that was popular in elementary school and a new crochet designs springs into your mind? That is exactly what happened to me a couple weeks ago, I immediately sat down and designed the Easter Egg Pocket with a Bunny or Chick Crochet Pattern.

Do you remember these cute paper weaving and cutting crafts from grade school? This is what was the inspiration behind the latest Easter pattern design.

I have fond memories of coming up with the best color combinations and then coloring so carefully to make the cute animals. As I sat down with my scrap yarn (which is a perfect way to use up all those leftover skeins) I fell in love with the egg pocket and cute animals.

Easter Egg Pocket Design

I love the weave look with the different colors of yarn. It just reminded me of a striped Easter Egg in spring colors. Immediately, I knew what stitch I needed to use to create this look and I already have a video tutorial of it! It is a basic block stitch that I used in my FREE Rock the Block Blanket that you can find by clicking HERE.

Crocheting this block stitch is so fun to see the weave created through the various rows. The pattern walks you through all the color changes and shape of the egg. The pocket can be made in a single color, or just 2 for a quilted look (see cream and teal sample) or add lots of colors for an Easter Egg look.

Bunnies & Chicks

After the Egg Pocket was completed I wanted a quick and simple bunny and chick pattern. The idea was to use the egg pocket as a pouch that it will slide inside of. After making several bunnies and chicks I saw how cute they turned out. Loving all the different pastel colors as they laid out, my daughter said the animals looked like sprinkles which she loves.

Some Bunny To Love Crochet Pattern

Everybody needs… Some Bunny To Love!

One afternoon, as I was perusing facebook one of my photographer friends sent me a message requesting a little stuffed bunny for a photo shoot. She wanted the child to be able to hold the little bunny by the arm with the bunny hanging at their side {I’ll be sure to share those photo’s once I receive them}.

Well, if you know me, I immediately sat down and started designing a cute little bunny. I had just finished designing my Sleepy Tight Teddy Bear stuffed animal and loved his long legs and arms. I immediately knew that this bunny would have those same darling features.

Some Bunny To Love

She needed to have some cute floppy ears, beady eyes, and cute nose and subtle mouth. But, even more important is a cute little fluffy tail.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set – Crochet Pattern

We just wrapped up month long CAL and am now ready to share the Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Pattern with all of you! This baby blanket is full of rich texture, new stitches and some cute cuddly teddy bears. This is machine washable although you may need to follow some after laundry steps, like airdrying it rather than putting it in the dryer.

I was actually inspired to make this baby blanket by one of my best friends. You see, her little one is currently entering one of the sleep regression ages and she is finding it difficult to get her baby to sleep. Put simply, a sleep regression is a period when a baby who has been sleeping well (or at least well enough) experiences poor sleep.

Sleep regressions can include shorter naps, extreme fussiness at nap or bedtime, fighting sleep, and frequent waking at night. Consequently, finding ways to help your baby to get to sleep during these times is crucial and one way to do this is by creating a cozy environment with blankets and soft toys.

The blanket is so fun to make, but I had to give you some options so adjusted the pattern to include a lovey sized blanket and a coordinating stuffed bear to make it the ultimate Gift Set.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear

As always, you can pick and choose your favorites or buy all 3 patterns at a package price. Grab the Baby Blanket, just the Lovey, or just the Teddy Bear Stuffy. Or grab the entire Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set for a discounted price.

The Blanket and Lovey can be made is so many fun color combinations. To see more check out the album from the CAL on facebook.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Lovey

Make a coordinating snuggly teddy bear.

I know these little sleepy teddy bears are too cute, but you have to add a snugly friend to go with them. The Sleep Tight Teddy Bear is a perfect size, completed it measures about 13″ tall.

Update: Teddy Bear Colors

I’ve received a handful of requests for the exact colors I used on my teddy bears. When I made the teddy bears on the blanket I just used scrap yarn that I happened to have on hand. The majority of it was either Red Heart Super Saver and/or Red Heart with Love. I am not 100% sure on each bears color but I believe it is as follows, numbering the bears from the left to the right:
  • 1st Bear: main color “grey” / muzzle “oatmeal” / nose & eyes “black”
  • 2nd Bear: main color “cornmeal” / muzzle “egg shell” / nose “warm brown” / eyes “mocha”
  • 3rd Bear: main color “warm brown” / muzzle “carrot” / nose “egg shell” / eyes “mocha”
  • 4th Bear: main color “oatmeal” / muzzle “buff” / nose & eyes “mocha”
  • 5th Bear: main color “charcoal” / muzzle “grey” / nose “warm brown” / eyes “black” with “warm brown” lashes

New Coordinating Designs

A couple new designs have been released to go along with the original Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set. The coordinating Sleep Tight Pocket Pillow features a fun pocket that can be used to store their stuffed teddy bear or a favorite book, as the child grows it can be used to store a kindle or other items as well.

I have also designed a coordination Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Hat. This darling accessory comes in sizes from newborn up through child.
