The unbelievably cute, fantastically practical, wonderfully useful Egg-cellent apron is the crochet apron you didn't know you needed in your life.
With Christmas done and dusted, the avid holiday planner will already be turning their sights to all the festivities lined up in 2020. Yeah, yeah, some of us are completely worn out by this incredibly hectic holiday season and the last thing we want to do now is more planning and preparations. However, some of the best gifts and events are the result of months of planning and the product I'm about to introduce you to today is one such item. Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on the unbelievably cute, fantastically practical, wonderfully useful Egg-cellent Apron.
The Egg-cellent Apron is a crocheted apron with a zillion pockets that—as the name suggests—are perfect for holding eggs. Perfect for Easter egg hunts, this product is the brainchild of Heart Hook Home, a blog and shop that features unique crochet patterns, and more. Bear in mind that Heart Hook Home only offers the crochet pattern for the apron through its Etsy store, so you can't just order a finished product online. On the other hand, it's perfect for crochet enthusiasts who love surprising their loved ones with unique handcrafted gifts.
According to this fun crochet pattern's Etsy description, each apron can hold up to 19 eggs at once. "For this egg-cellent egg gathering apron we will create a back/main portion, three strips that we will use for pockets, one large pocket is placed last, for your cell phone, to-do list, pen... whatever. Then we will add a strap, doubled-up for added durability," reads the description. Priced at $ 4.72, the apron can be made in any color scheme of your choice and is available in both adult and child sizes. Seller Ashlea Konecny reveals that the child-sized Egg-cellent Egg Gathering Apron, "holds eight eggs, it is approximately 15 inches wide and 10 inches tall. It fits my eight-year old and my ten-year-old perfectly."
As you might've already guessed, Easter egg hunting isn't the only time this apron could come in handy as it would be absolutely perfect all-year-round for chicken farmers who have to collect eggs from their chicken coops every day. While Heart Hook Home only offers the crochet pattern, those who aren't experts at crocheting can also enjoy the benefits of owning an egg apron as a number of Etsy sellers offer made-to-order aprons. For example, Etsy seller TreasuresByNeissa is currently selling these aprons at $34.40 per piece.
"My egg apron makes it easy to collect and carry your daily eggs. I have a small flock at home that I really enjoy taking care of and I love that my apron has individual pockets for each egg. It has 20 total pockets. It holds 19 eggs and has one large pocket perfect for your cell phone or other things. I have a confession... I also use mine when collecting tomatoes! This apron measures 25 inches wide (not including the ties) and 14 inches tall. The strings are each 25 inches long each. From tip to tip the strings measures about 75 inches," seller Neissa Byers states, adding that customers can get their aprons customized in any size they want. Happy egg gathering, folks!
