Felt Food - Carrot

Looking for some more cute “pretend” food for your kids to play with? 

As a follow up to yesterday's tutorial on how to make adorable felt eggs out of scraps of felt, here is one on how to make felt carrots.  My boys love having this cute felt food in their play kitchen.

You’ll need:
  • Scraps of orange and green felt
  • Cotton balls or stuffing
  • A needle and thread (orange)
  • Scissors
  • Paper and pencil to make a template


Cut two carrot shapes out of orange felt and one rectangle out of green felt.  (You can make a paper template first.  It makes it a little easier.)

Stitch the green rectangle onto on of the orange pieces.  (See diagram for positioning.)

Use scissors to "fringe" the green triangle.

Place the second orange piece on top and stitch one side.  Add cotton, and finish stitching.

That's it -- even the Easter Bunny would be impressed!
