How to make a felt carrot 

There are only a few simple steps to make a felt carrot

 Step 1 

Download the pattern and cut out the two pieces below

 Step 2 

Fold the carrot piece in half widthways (don’t press) and sew as shown to make a cone shape. You could use a sewing machine for this or sew it by hand using backstitch

 Step 3 

Trim the seam allowance and snip off the bottom tip, as shown. This will make it easier to turn the right side out

 Step 4

Turn the carrot the right side out. Gently push the chopstick into the end of the carrot to make it pointed

Step 5

Make 1" (2.5cm) cuts into the rectangle 3/16" (0.5cm) apart to create the carrot’s leaves

Step 8 

Tie a knot in a piece of thread and place the needle through the inside of the carrot and out near the seam by the opening. Use a running stitch to sew around the opening of the carrot. Pull gently on the thread to gather the stitches

That's it! They really are so easy to make. If you wanted you could scale up the pattern on a printer to make the carrots bigger to use as Easter decor or make some for your children's play kitchen
