We're having Carrots for Easter!

Yes! We're having carrots for Easter afterall! Not the edible variety. Today, quite by chance, I happened to stumble upon Clare's blog aptly titled Clare's Craftroom and I discovered these oh-so-sweet fabric carrots to make. Clare was gracious enough to sketch out the pattern and give a tutorial to share. You can view and make your very own fabric carrots by clicking to her instructions HERE.
I had no intention of spending the afternoon making carrots but when I saw Clare's instructions were very sucinct and easy to follow...well, one thing led to another and I found myself looking through my fabrics and fat quarters to see if I had anything to make cute carrots with. I've discovered the my fabric stash is lacking in cute ORANGE fabrics but I did have these on hand so off I went and spent the afternoon whipping up a batch of carrots to use as our table decorations for Easter.

Doesn't it look like the Easter Bunny delivered this basket?

I've posted previously this month the instructions for the plush bunnies (below) and the fabric eggs in the photo provided by more very generous fiber artists who have generously shared their creative talents. What fun it is for me to find these patterns and lovely ideas for holiday decorations online to make. Thank you ladies!

Now I must finish up the Easter preparations that I had intended to do today. My bunny, chick and flower sugar cookies cutouts are baked and I just need to frost and decorate them. I hard boiled a few eggs for the mister and myself to color later this evening.

Easter blessings to each and every one of you!



  1. Cute carrots. I think that it might be too late for me to make them tonight, but maybe for next year.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Those carrots are so cute.
    I love all of your Easter sewing creations,
    I would love to make some of those eggs.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. I truly appreciate them.
