They say rabbits multiply quickly. Rabbits eat carrots. Maybe this is why carrots seem to multiply so quickly at my house? Or maybe it’s because they are just so cute and fun to make? I first posted a tutorial for fabric carrots a few years ago- and every year since, March has become carrot season at our house. This year I decided to release a video tutorial showing how to sew fabric carrots. It includes all the steps to make your own darling bunches.
How to Sew Fabric Carrots- video tutorial
To accompany the video- I also created a printable PDF version of the fabric carrot pattern to make it easy to reference and also included paper templates for the carrots and the leaves. You can find it in my Etsy shop.
Need some ideas for using all the carrots you end up making?
- Put a bunch in a planter or vase.
- Tie a bunch with a ribbon or twine to add to a mantel or shelf.
- Make a small bunch of mini carrots to place on a tiered tray.
- String some mini carrots on string, with or without felt poms, to create a garland.
I prefer making my fabric carrots from a variety of fabrics. Fat quarters, scraps and even sale bins are a great place to look for all the orange prints. Don’t limit yourself to just one type of print either- while polkadots and stripes are an easy choice- floral, plaid and even gingham carrots are darling. And while orange might be the most obvious choice (and the one I use most often) neutral, pink or “spring” themed prints can make fun, unique carrots too!
You might find you need to find a bunny or two to help manage your growing collection of fabric carrots.
This Bunny Hop pillow tutorial is a fun project with reverse applique. So cute on a bench or your couch.
And my girls still have, and love, their bunnies I made with my Cricut Maker.
