Felt Carrot Wraps

It is springtime (well almost anyway) which translates to me as CARROT season.  I love the orange and green together and believe that Mother Nature knows what she is doing when it comes to coordinating colors. I created these reusable felt carrot wraps for our kiddo’s Easter table this year and totally love them.

You will need:

  • 1 yard Kunin Eco-FiPlus™ Premiumfelt™, orange (makes 4)
  • 9” x 12” craft cuts Kunin Eco-Fi™ Classicfelt™, 4 green
  • Scissors, pins, ruler, pencil, fabric adhesive or sewing machine and matching thread.

TO make them, I cut out a large circle in orange (using the trash can for my guide).  It measures 16 inches in circumference.  I also cut out a few green pieces to use as leaves, being careful not to cut the fold where I will bend them in half.

I carefully placed the leaves on the edge of the circle.

Using my sewing machine, I stitched the leaves on and went all the way around the circle to create a “finished” looking masterpiece.  I used a zig zag stitch.  If you don’t have a sewing machine, you could do this step by hand stitching or with a fabric glue.

The next step is the folding.  Lay your circle on a plate.  Fold the bottom up over your silverware then wrap the sides around.
