DIY Fabric Easter Carrots🥕

With the boys being home we have been looking for all kinds of things to do. This craft is fun, kid-friendly and educational because they are learning to create something out of fabric and poly-fill. My boys really enjoyed this one and I hope you do, too!

You’ll start by picking out 2 cute Spring fabrics that accent each other well.
Measure even squares for your pieces of fabric. I chose different sizes. One 12 inch one 10 inch one 8 inch. I wanted the sizes to accent each other.
Cut it from one corner to the opposite far corner. You’ll cut it diagonally.
You should end up with a triangle piece like this
Fold it over inside out allowing a little room at the end of the fabric. You’ll use this extra fabric to glue over the other piece to make your seam.
You want to glue the outside of the fabric because you’re going to turn it inside out. If you have reversible fabric that’s even better! With a hot glue gun you will glue quickly a pretty perfect straight line all the way along the edge. Make sure there are no spaces otherwise your carrot seam will have spaces. This is the trick to the “no sewing!“
Once you’ve stuffed the carrot with your poly fill you’re going to gather the excess fabric at the top and tie a piece of twine around it to hold it in place. Make sure the twine tie is in the middle with the fabric gathered.
Gather your greens and twist off a couple pieces from the sprig. You can use wire cutters for this or it should be able to twist off pretty easy from the rest of the sprig. I used only a couple sprigs for each of the carrots.
You will stick the wire down in the center of the top of the carrot were you tie the twine.
Now you have two adorable fabric carrots for the Easter season!
I placed all my carrots in a little Easter basket and set it on my entryway table for decoration. Another fun, cute, simple and inexpensive craft especially on the “stay at home” quarantine days!! Stay well stay safe and stay creative. God bless!
