We love unexpected egg-ceptional ideas, so when we came across blogger Ashlea Konecny’s egg-collecting apron on her website called Heart Hook Home, we had a good cackle.

While Konecny doesn’t have chickens yet herself, she enjoys creating new crochet patterns for others.

“My friend, Cassy (pictured below), has 30 chickens and harvests dozens of eggs each day,” she says. “Her old method of gathering eggs was cumbersome so I created a new apron design for her. She loves it.”

The online response was so great that Konecny followed up the original with a child-size pattern.
