Easy to sew Easter decor!

Posted by Lena Kantis
I wanted to make some new fun decorations for the Easter. I came up with the idea to sew carrots! 

Here are the quick easy steps to sew them!

1. Print out the template. It is found here. It does contain a flag template as well if you wish to sew carrots as appliqués on the flags!

2. Sew some dots on the carrot pieces, use the Sewing Advisor to select, Sew on Button. Use a thread color slightly darker than your fabric. 

3. Sew around the drawn shape using a straight stitch. Cut around the shape leaving 1/4" (6mm).

3. Cut 4 or 5 pieces 2" (4-5cm) long pieces of the green ribbons. They do not need to have the exact same length.

4. Sew a few stitches on the ribbons pieces to keep them together use a straight stitch.

5. Fill the Carrot with fiber fill.

6. Fold the top of the carrot 1/2" (1cm) to the wrong side of the carrot. Use a hand needle to close the opening.

This is a very quick sewing project so you can make a few to create a bunch of carrots!

When I was going to take the picture to share my sewn carrots I went out to our storage room that is filled with sewing samples and I found the Bunny ( with a carrot in her  hand!). If you want to sew and embroider the bunny you can find the embroidery design collection #172 " Be my Bunny" at myembroideries.com.
Please find the instruction here for the cute bunny. It is almost as quick as the carrots!

I wish you all enjoy a Happy Easter!

Happy Sewing!

Thank you Shan! We had big problems with our server this last weekend. I apologize for that. It should now be fixed and the free download will be there always, so it will not be taken away.

Thank you for the feedback on our website, I will forward to our team for further improvements.
Best wishes

PLEASE will you also make it clearer on your web site HOW to find the new projects or embroidery designs, they are so difficult to find now - just have an option "Montly Project" or Free Design and go from there. There are lots of nice options, but sometimes we just want to go straght to the new free design!
