Adorably realistic carrots, made of felt.
I drew these patterns out myself on construction paper (as always :) and cut the pieces out of felt.
You can very easily mimic my pattern seen below in yellow :)
one carrot piece and two leaf pieces for each carrot.
Sew lines on the leaves to resemble veins
Trim the thread
fold stem part over, then over again (like rolled) and sew it up to leaf
my unperfectly perfect leaf :)
repeat for other leaf
sew little lines here and there on carrot piece to add real carrot texture
then trim loose threads
Next fold right sides together and sew carrot base together
turn carrot inside right. . . you should have these 3 pieces
stuff carrot (i use left over felt pieces diced up)
using embroidery floss, or doubled thread, sew a base stitch around top of carrot. Do not cut or tie off yet!
Place leaf pieces inside carrott
Pull thread to gather top together
Once pulled very tight, tie it off, then sew back and forth thru the leaves a few times so they can not be pulled out
Repeat for each carrot you wish, and that is that. . . delicious looking carrots!
