Easter Egg Bag Crochet Pattern | Beginner Friendly

Hello, Spring!

Easter is just around the corner and I have been having a ton of fun creating Spring and Easter- themed patterns all week. This Easter Egg Bag is so cute and customizable. I chose the colors yellow, purple, and pink for this bag, but feel free to mix it up with any colors that you like. My bag is slouchy and soft, but if you would like your bag to be more stiff and more like a basket, you can double your yarn or use thicker yarn.

If you would like, you can download the ad-free, printable pattern here.
