Hello there fellow felt friends! It’s Laura here again and I have a confession. I have become addicted to making all things carrot as the springtime arrives. I made few little felt and fabric carrots for my bunny loving Zoe and she was only sort of impressed. She asked where the big carrot for her bed was. So I made it.
For inspiration, I consulted my licensable portfolio of art and rediscovered my doodled carrots. I decided to use the following materials to make a bigger carrot pillow.
I cut my carrot freehand, the front and back at the same time. I tore fabric scraps to make the stripes. Then I cut five felt strips from green about an inch wide and twelve inches long. I tore green fabric for these.
I used the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine to add the stripes to the carrot front and to the green strips.
I assembled the carrot to sew it together, pinning the green pieces folder over across the top.
Then I used the zig zag stitch all the way around the pillow, leaving a 3 inch gap to stuff it. I stuffed it then sewed the opening closed. The last step I did was stitch on some Outrageous Orange buttons from my collection with Buttons Galore to add that final touch.
Happy Making Carrots and Celebrating The Little Things,
