Supplies:

  • thin cardboard for template
  • pen or pencil
  • ruler
  • orange fabric scraps
  • green fabric (1/4 yd. per color)
  • scissors
  • pins
  • thread
  • sewing machine

  • iron
  • orange thread for top stitching, optional

Steps:

  1. Create a template for the carrot using thin cardboard. My carrot template measures 10 inches x 18 inches.

  3. Cut triangular strips of orange fabric. They can be wide or narrow and need to extend at least 1/2 inch past the edges of the template. Sew the strips together, until it is slightly longer than the template. Press seams. NOTE: Be sure to test fit the template onto the fabric frequently to make sure you have proper coverage.
