Carrot treat bags -tutorial

Fully lined, NO handstitching!

Cut 2 outside pieces for the carrot, 2 lining pieces, 2 green top pieces (note, the top pattern piece is on a fold).
The top inch or so of the carrot is squared with the top edge. That will become an opening for the ribbon ties so it needs to be even

You can really cut any size but too much smaller gets tricky to sew. The measurements shown here donโ€™t include seam allowance, add whatever you are comfortable sewing.

Pin right sides of the carrot outside & lining to the green top as shown

Leave a couple inches along one top edge unsewn, between the marks

Sew the pinned edges, press the seam allowances towards the centre of the green piece

Stack the pieces right sides together, mark a 1/2" where shown, start stitching just past the 1/2" mark, stop at the mark, start again at the other mark leaving a 1/2" open. Stitch all around the lining to the other side, leaving a 1/2" open there too.

I pressed the seams open

You can sew around like I have here or skip this step

Start where you ended the stitching by the 1/2" opening and sew the outside pieces together

Trim the curve, you can clip it but I find pinking shears work well for this

Turn right side out through the opening left at the beginning

Press, then sew around the edge of the green top. This will close the opening. Add another row of stitches on the other side of the opening.

Ribbon will be threaded through this channel

If you want to sew an unlined bag this video is good, youโ€™ll see how to insert the ribbons as well.

Pull ribbon to cinch up the pouch.

I hope youโ€™ll make some! Please show me if you do :slight_smile:

Itโ€™s easy to change the shape & size, Iโ€™ve been using up whatever fabric I have on hand so mine are all different.

Thank you for sharing a lovely little tutorial! :carrot:

Also I bet you could do the same technique to make Strawberry Bags, if you altered the cone shape a bit to be wider and shorterโ€ฆ Wishing I had my sewing stuff and space to work right nowโ€ฆ :strawberry: :strawberry: :strawberry:

I made a carrot costume for my little boyโ€™s friend for a carnival parade and Iโ€™ve got some orange fabric left. His mum doesnโ€™t want it back and she said I could keep it. Well well, guess what Iโ€™ll make with it :carrot:
