Easter Carrots

I got this idea from my neighbor. Thanks Liz. Aren't these carrots cute. I might even eat my veggies if they were this cute! They are super easy to make.

What you need is:

3-5 different orange fat quarter
1 green fat quarter
Sewing Machine
Rubber Band

Lay your fat quarters on the bias (corner to corner). Lightly sketch a long "V" on it. I cut mine at 3 1/2 inches (folded--total measure across is 7 inches) and 20, 18, and 16 inches long. You can make more if you like just remember odd numbers look better.

Fold the fabric inside out longwise and sew edges leaving the tops open. Turn right sides out and stuff.

Tear strips from the green fat quarter. I made mine 1/2 wide and then cut them in half. Place in the tops of the carrots and stitch closed. Gather all of the green tops and rubberband together. Tie twine around the rubberband. Hang.
