Giraffe lays an egg?

Last year we went to a community easter egg hunt near my parents’ house.  Mini boo got scared, required I hold him the entire time, and refused to pick up any eggs.  This year we will keep it low key.  No big community hunt (aggro parents nearly trampling 1 year olds in the quest for most eggs… no thanks) but instead a little hunt in the walking park near our house, and a brand new hunting bag.

Discussion of an Easter egg bag went like this:

Me: Do you want a new bag to find eggs with?

Mini: Yeah.  Giraffe lays eggs?

Me: Nope, chickens lay eggs

Mini: Alligator lays eggs?

Me: Yes, alligator lays eggs!

Mini: Afghan Hound lays eggs!

Me: Nope, lion doesn’t lay eggs.

Mini: Triceratops lays eggs!

Me:  Uhhh, well, they did…

and so on

In honor of this very fun, very long conversation with my boy I decided this year’s bag will feature an animal that lays eggs.

So remember:

Easter Basket Detail


Project Details:

This bag is based on the Purl Bee tutorial for Easter Egg Hunt Bags.  I used much cheaper felt (20% wool / 80% polyester) and a little less ric-rack and added a t-rex.  The t-rex was cut out of interfacing reinforced quilting cotton and simply fabric-glued on.  I don’t expect an heirloom here – just a toy.
