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.
