Here is a quick tutorial on how I made the carrots:
So cute. I heart yarn.
I used a 6×6 inch square piece of felt for the interior. I used pink only because it was all I had on hand. If I had had enough orange felt, I would have used that instead.
Rolled it up.
I glue gunned the corner. Now it vaguely resembles a carrot.
I started wrapping the yarn from the bottom up, securing it with glue first.
Then I tied the top of the felt tight with yarn.
Then I cut off the felt top above the tie. I also cut a small square of orange felt, to cap the top of the carrot, so no felt shows through, and also because it finished the top off nicely.
To make the green carrot top, I just cut pieces of green yarn and tied them together to make a bunch. Then I tucked them under the orange yarn, and glued. The bottom tip of the carrot also had some felt showing through, so to finish it off I glued on a tiny piece of orange yarn.
Have fun with it! Add embellishments, braid the yarn, add a rosette…go to town!
