So, I have decided for Easter to make my family some cute little things. Since there are a whole pile of kids in the family now, it just seemed easiest :). And with kids with food allergies, you actually try to find ways to make food holidays easier by eliminating the food part. So, figured some stuffies would be fantastic. So, I found this cute adorable tutorial online to make carrots here.
Now, I totally made some of my own rules up on this one. First of all, I chose fabrics with some pretty neat patterns. I didn't want to go for the total orange and green. I followed the instructions to the T when cutting and sewing the pieces. But once together, I went a different route. Instead of tacking (which I am awful at) I sewed flat the leaf pieces to the top of the carrot part after stuffing. I did a triple round for those to ensure it was nice and tight. And to hide my hem, I tied some cute bows with some extra ribbon I had on hand :). Here's how mine turned out.
