I can't tell you how many hours I have spend searching for a way to dye or decorate our Easter eggs without all the harmful crap you can find in a bag of "non toxic" egg dye. My previous attempts to make cute Easter eggs were made with empty egg shells due to the glue used. This year I finally got a clue to use my love for amigurumi and decided to "dress up" my eggs with cute monsters cozies, or hats.

I came up with this idea as soon as I saw the colors of the cotton yarn I got from FlyingTiger. I mean look at them! They are the perfect colors for Easter and spring!

Since they are quite thin I used a double strain to crochet the monster egg cozies. This is really the perfect amigurumi crochet pattern for beginners! You just need to know how to increase and do the magic circle. No need to stuff, count for the eye placement or embroider anything! I bet you can totally impress your guests and family this Easter with them!

Cut some tongues with pink felt and some teeth with the white one. Glue them on the inside of the cozy to form teeth and tongues for your monsters.

Glue the eyes wherever you want trying to achieve goofy and fun expressions for your monsters. You can place the cozy on an egg to help you decide on the best placement.

Your monsters egg cozies are ready to be placed on your hard-boiled Easter eggs!
