A Carrot from Scraps

I made this carrot a couple of years from fabrics in my scrap stash.
I saw the pattern in Quilts and More magazine and knew immediately it would be perfect for Easter.

It went together quicky and it was quilted with each strip I sewed.

Here it is with Williard the Wabbit!
If you sew or a quilter it is easily made and I have a carrot that cost me nothing but time.  It was really fun to sew.

Finally I found these last week at Hobby Lobby for $3 for the large one and $2 for the smaller ones.  They will go perfect in my bedroom.  They were regularly priced at $10 and $8.  Everyone loves a pretty tassel!

Sweet Bee Cottage is having a giveaway over at her blog celebrating her 122nd post.
She has the cutest blog.  Please go by and tell her I sent you! 
I would love to win these containers from Gooseberry Patch.

Thank you all for the comments on my last post.  I hope to get my sewing machine back this week.  In the meantime I am using another sewing machine I have and making other things.  I will show you later.

Thanks for visiting and God Bless!

Donna you amaze me by making such beautiful things like quilts, carrots, etc and make it sound so very easy......I don't think you realize how challenged I am with a needle and thread. That's okay though I am pleased to be able to see all your wonderful goodies.
.......:-) Hugs

I just love when I come to a blog post and I exclaim out loud. I just did that over your absolutely adorable carrot. You got a "WOO!" out of me. Thanks for stopping by and posting about my giveaway. Good luck to you! These might be great for storing quilting/sewing supplies. :)

I've had that carrot tabletop pattern for years & now I'm kicking myself for not making it yet. You've inspired me to dig it out & get it done for next year. Beautifully done, Donna!
