Felt Carrot Money Pocket

I made one of these pockets for each of my kids. It's a cute way to give them each some spending money for Easter.



  1. Draw a template on a piece of cardstock. Then cut out the template and stick it on the felt with rolled pieces of tape.
  2. Cut out two felt carrots for each pocket.
  3. Cut a long length of embroidery floss and divide it into two pieces of 3 strands each.
  4. Thread an embroidery needle and using a backstitch, start stitching the details onto one of the felt carrots. Lines that are close together can be done with a continuous piece of embroidery floss. Tie off the ends of the floss when you are finished.
  5. Place the carrot with the stitched details on top of the other carrot. Then lay it on the template and put pins at the top to mark when you will start and stop sewing (see photo below). Then pin the two pieces together in the middle.
  6. Using a backstitch, start at one marking pin and stitch all the way around the edge of the carrot, stopping at the other marking pin. Then continue stitching, only through the front carrot, until you reach where you started. This will leave an opening to insert the money.
  7. Fold money into thirds, lengthwise, and insert them into the opening of the carrot. Have fun!
  8. These make a perfect gift to stick into someone's Easter basket!
