Carrot Gift Bags for Easter

I wanted to make something for my grandsons for Easter.  I decided to make a carrot gift bag.  I was really happy with the way they turned out.  I put some lightweight ironon vilene on the orange fabric an then cut out the carrot shape.  I did a few lines and squiggles to make it look like a carrot in a very small satin stitch. For the leafy top I cut a sort of rounded shape, 4 for each carrot top.  I stitched 2 pieces right sides together leaving about 3/4 inch at each end. Turned  them the right way and stitched the carrot top accross the top, wrong side of carrot and  right side of carrot top ( just a single layer). I then bought the other piece of the carrot top,down over the seam, turned under the edge and stitched close to the edge. This is where I threaded the ribbon. I stitched up the carrot right sides together making sure not to catch the open ends where the ribbon is threaded.  I filled them with Easter goodies.
I thought they looked cute.,  I am always looking for ideas for boys if anyone has any I would love to hear from you.


  1. These are simply charming! I bet the boys loved them! I have made art totes for boys and super hero boxer shorts for them to wear as pj's. Super hero capes... in fact ANY capes go over well, too. LOL
