Crochet Easter egg cozies are just so cute. Technically they are functional items that are used to keep hard-boiled eggs warm. However, they can also be used for decor, photo props, hiding eggs and so much more. Crochet Easter egg cozies work up quickly, offering an instant gratification project that is great for stash-busting. Here is one free crochet pattern for a V-stitch Easter egg cozy.

Are you a coffee lover in need of a mug koozie to bring a smile to your mornings? Well Red Heart has the cutest Owl Mug Wrap pattern you’ll have to make for that morning Cup of Joe. Two of my college friends asked me to make them one and how could I say no? It’s so super cute, quick and easy, and a perfect project to get rid of any scrap yarn you have laying around. You can use any colors too! I might keep this one in my back pocket for some Christmas gifts.
Of course, I made a few adjustments to the pattern to make it my own but not many so here goes…
We all waited for the birth of Prince George with great anticipation and the same holds true for the newest addition to the royal family. I have to admit that I am curious as to the gender of their baby, but I think all babies have a “royal” quality to them even if they don’t live in a palace.
Hello all! My name is Amy Reader and I am the artist behind the 100 Women Project. This project invites women from around the world to participate in a collaborative crochet installation by asking them to crochet at least one wisteria vine and mail it to me. Once all the vines are collected, they will be displayed in an installation inspired by the wisteria tunnels in Japan. This installation will be shown as part of my senior thesis art exhibition in late April and early May. This project is the culmination of my four years as an art major at the University of Richmond and has come to represent more than just the end of my college education.

It always seemed like everyone was just a little happier and it still makes me smile just thinking about this time of year.
