Tempt the Easter Bunny with These Crafty Carrots!
These cute fabric carrots will add a playful touch during spring, especially as part of your Easter decor. They’re quick to stitch up, so make several in scraps of orange and green fabrics.
Display your carrots in a bowl, strung from a garland, or in any number of ways.
We love the look of a bunch of carrots hung from the front door. Notice that these carrots don’t have fabric leaves. Instead, greenery is tucked into the top of the bunch (here’s the tutorial).

We could not find an exact pattern for this project, but the carrots are not hard to make. All you need is a tall skinny triangle for a carrot and rounded-off rectangles for the leaves. You can make your own templates from the visual tutorial provided by A Confetti Life. Simply increase the sizes, while keeping the proportions, if you want larger carrots.
Stitch two triangles together, turn and stuff. For each leaf, sew two leaf shapes together and turn. Gather the top of the carrot together, tuck in three leaves, and stitch to secure. Add a green ribbon and you’re done!
A second tutorial, from Amy at Ameroonie Designs, produces carrots that look very similar. However, it goes into more detail about how to create carrots of various widths and lengths.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
