Spring Homemade Fabric Carrots

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.

What you will need:

Spring Fabric by the yard

Sewing machine or Iron on Tape

Scissors or Rotary Cutter

Various green color of ribbon for stem / leaves

Step 1

Choose your fabrics. Don’t be afraid to use patterns in your fabric! The end result will be colorful in your display.

Step 2

Cut your fabric into strips using 1/3 yard of fabric.

Cut strips into 18″ length by 11″ wide.

Cut fabric in half lengthwise.

Step 3

Place fabric rights ides together.

Step 4

Using a straight edge, mark your seam 5/8 inch from right and left edges and 3inches from bottom corner.

Step 5

Sew right sides together on right and left edges.

Do not sew top so you can stuff with filling later.

Step 6

Turn the carrot inside out.

Step 7

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!
