Can you believe Easter is only a couple of weeks away? Time has certainly flown by and the first signs of spring are already here. The journey to work has brightened with daffodils springing up here and there. Working in an old potato barn means we are surrounded by fields and farm land. Over the past week or so I have caught the sight of many little lambs bobbing around, snuggling up to their mothers in the fields nearby. Nature really does provide us with lots of fresh inspiration for new projects – the flora, fauna and blue skies (fingers crossed for that one).
Have you thought of giving an Easter gift? How about a change from a chocolate egg this year? With the theme of Easter in mind we have brought together 10 patterns to help with Easter gift ideas and inspiration. Many of the patterns are free downloads too!
Cherry Heart has this free pattern for ‘Garden Curtain Ties’ available to download from her blog. A lovely way to spruce up your home and add a sprinkle of spring.
Hope over to Cross-stitching.com where you will find an Easter bunny card design.
Keeping with the rabbit theme. How about Bobby the Bunny by Emma Varnam? He is an adorable free pattern to download.
Why not knit someone a whole bunch of daffodils? A gift that will stay in bloom year after year. There are many more patterns in the Sirdar book Knit Pretty!
A fresh, spring blanket and cushion in Stylecraft Malabar Aran.
Knit a ‘Bunny Jar Topper‘ and combine two gifts in one. Fill a jar full of yummy sweets and add the bunny on top for an extra gift.
Annaboo’s House crocheted flowers caught my eye as a fun spring make. They would look fab joined together to make a pretty garland or added to a hair clip.
There you have it our 10 Easter gift ideas. If you have made any gifts for Easter please share your photos and email firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be great to share them here on the blog!
