Crocheted Egg Cozies

Hello, Dear Ones! I promised I would show you some of the things I've crocheted as I was recooping.
 Feast your most gorgeous peepers on these darling little egg cozies.
 Aren't these just darling? I've been wanting to make these for years and just never took the time so I grabbed my tiny little crochet hook and grabbed a bunch of cotton thread and went to town.
 Now wouldn't this make you smile to wake up one morning and see these sweet little girls keeping your soft boiled eggs warm? They are going to make me smile for sure.
 Let's get up close and personal to these little ladies. Each one is a little bit different from the others.
 Each little lady has her own individual hat and collar and even crocheted buttons on the front of her dress.
 This one has naturally curly hair and has her little head tilted just a bit. Not that I sewed it on crooked or anything! :)
This little lady is very affectionate and wants to kiss everyone.
The sun was shining brightly through the kitchen window and the girls wanted to line up so you could see their little hats better.

 Here are their sweet faces again. I have to admit, these little  puppies egg cozies took me quite a while to make since they were made with the cotton thread and all. After the pieces were crocheted, I stuffed them, embroidered their features and then sewed them together. Oh, and actually these are called egg warmers according to the instructions.
 
 If you're interested in the pattern this is the book where it came from. I so don't want to infringe upon a copyright or anything so I won't put the pattern in my post. This book was published in 1995 ~ I've had it for a long time.
 Here's the little egg cozies/warmers in the book. I didn't add eyebrows or noses because I didn't think they looked too cute.
Okie dokie, sit right down and have your egg - our little gal has kept it nice and warm for you. Oh, you may not want to try this egg as it's not edible! :) Don't you just love faux stuff?


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Little Egg

Once there was a little egg, that sat upon a wall.
Soon he started to wobble, then he started to fall.
He cried out for help, as down, down, he fell.
I grabbed him in my hand, so he didn’t crack his shell. But later, when he thought his troubles were at an end,
My mother cracked him in a bowl, I watched him drop right in.
This story has a sad end, for the little egg any way.
But as for my family, he brightened up our day!

  11. Oh how cute- these are adorable. You really are good at this! I never took to it- I tried knitting and crocheting. I could do it I just didn't have the patience!

  12. Crocheted egg warmers . . . an entirely new level of crafting for me!

    I tell you what, if you give us a minute, we can figure out how to hot glue, sequin or crochet just about anything! The ladies here in Fairhope crocheted a telephone pole cover. NO LIE!!!

  17. Those are the cutest egg cozies I've ever seen! Very delightful, as is the sweet song you share! This did brighten my day, and if I had been paying attention to my Mother's instructions when I was younger, I would have known how to crochet, myself. Ah, well! She did teach me embroidery and knitting which I still do. . .

  20. These are just ADORABLE Sheila! The only thing I have ever crocheted were those rag baskets that you used a big ol' needle on when they were popular. I am SO very impressed with your perfect and tiny little stitches! Your talents just never end :)

  25. Those are so cute. I like them without the eyebrows, etc., too. I think they are cuter the way you made them. That and knitting are the two "crafts" I have never learned to do. I am going to have to try it one of these days. xo Diana

  37. Oh my goodness, Shelia, those are so darn cute! I'm feeling proud of myself that I can actually crochet a heart-shape (mostly looks like a heart...lol), but I don't think I will ever be as skilled as you are. So cute and they look perfect in your pretty kitchen.
