'Shabby Chic' Fabric Easter Egg Pattern Using Fabric and T-Shirt Yarn

I love the shabby chic vibe these fabric eggs give to my Easter decor … such a cozy, cottagey feel that I just love! And best of all, you can upcycle old T-shirts or scrap fabric you have right on hand for this Easter egg pattern. You can see my tutorial on How to Make Fabric Yarn here or see this How to make T-shirt Yarn tutorial from Repeat Crafter Me. And of course, if you have nothing on hand to upcycle, you can buy T-shirt yarn already made. I included some buying links at the bottom of the post for you to check out.

‘Shabby Chic’ Fabric Easter Egg Pattern

Here’s what you will need:

  • a ball of T-shirt yarn or fabric yarn
  • a large hook, I used a size N for these
  • scissors


Resources and tutorials you may find helpful in following this pattern: Crochet AbbreviationsU.S. to U.K. Crochet Conversion ChartHow to Make a Magic Ring.



Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.


Eggs are worked in unjoined rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds.

Make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a ring).

Round 1: Ch 1, work 6 sc in ring — 6 sts.

Round 2: Work 2 sc in each st around — 12 sts.

Rounds 3 through 5: Work 1 sc in each st around — 12 sts.

(For fabric eggs or extra bulking fabric, add an extra round of 1 sc in each st)

Round 6: Sc2tog around — 6 sts.

Fasten off leaving a long tail to weave opening closed. Weave in ends.

    An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.

    I believe that you need to publish more on this subject, it may not be
    a taboo matter but generally people do not discuss such issues.
    To the next! Many thanks!!
