Carrots, Carrots, Carrots!
Easter Decor Inspiration # 2-Giant Fabric Carrots
With so many bunnies appearing in my craft room, I figured the bunny patch needed carrots! Not just any carrots though, I wanted big, oversized carrots. These were also made using unconventional fabrics, as well as orange. Note: My carrots (without greens) measured approximately 15″ before stuffing and approximately 12″ after closing.
There are many fabric carrot tutorials online so finding a pattern you are happy with shouldn’t be too difficult. Even if you find one that isn’t the size you want, adjusting and altering is pretty simple, after all, a carrot is basically a cone shape.
I sewed a green fabric square to the carrot “triangle” before I stitched up the side of the carrot. I also added a bit of jute twine at the point for roots.
After stuffing, I gathered the carrot closed and wrapped with a ripped strip of muslin that I tied in a bow.
Lastly, I ripped the green square in 1/4″ widths for the carrot top.
