Who wants to learn how to make adorable plushies like these? They are super simple and once you learn the basic skill of the plushie, you can apply the skill to any shape or design you desire!
Here's what you'll need: colored felt and fabric, needle, thread (matching body design), scissors, buttons, stuffing, and a sewing machine (optional if you are an efficient hand-sewer):
Step 1: Cut out desired shapes of both leaves and body of carrot while leaving a little room (making it fatter) on the edges to allow for sewing. You can either draw your desired shape on the fabric and cut it out or cut it free form:
Step 2: Run leaves through sewing machine to add desired embellishment detailing with stitching:
Step 3: Make sure the "wrong sides" (the side you don't want showing) of the carrot are facing outwards on both sides and sandwich the leaves between them. You will want to invert the leaves on the inside of the carrot facing down with the base of them sticking out a little past the edges of the carrot fabric sides:
Step 4: Pin your fabric in place securely and begin to slowly run it through the machine on the edges of the carrot fabric. (I prefer to start on the side of the carrot and work my way around the top where the leaves are):
Step 7: After stuffing the carrot to your desired fill, sew up the opening in the carrot by hand with needle and a thread matching the body of the carrot. You will want to sew the sides as close to the seam as possible, trying to conceal the stitching:
Step 8: Tie a knot in the thread when you have finished stitching the opening tight and trim all loose threads, and any stuffing that may be on the seam:
