I wanted some cute homemade fabric carrots for my Spring decorations several years ago.
My Mom had some plain orange fabric and I had some green ribbon and she set up the sewing machine to create these carrots.

Choose your fabrics. Don’t be afraid to use patterns in your fabric! The end result will be colorful in your display.
Cut your fabric into strips using 1/3 yard of fabric.
Cut strips into 18″ length by 11″ wide.
Cut fabric in half lengthwise.
Place fabric rights ides together.
Using a straight edge, mark your seam 5/8 inch from right and left edges and 3inches from bottom corner.
Sew right sides together on right and left edges.
Do not sew top so you can stuff with filling later.
Turn the carrot inside out.
Stuff carrot with filling.
Tie top of carrot with several pieces of ribbon.
I used 3 pieces of ribbon and tied at various sides at top to make the “leaves / stem” fuller.
I used various fabrics and several different green ribbons I had on hand. They are so fun to decorate with!
