These Carrot Treat Pouches are sure to make your kids want their vegetables! They are worked from the point up and cinched at the top with a drawstring. This is a great way to package Easter treats, money gifts and more. Or just make them because they are fun!.
I designed these with a simple chain loop for the leaves. I love the frilly look, they remind me of real carrots coming out of the ground. I used a length of yarn to tie them closed, but if you want something a little sturdier, you could chain the tie or make a cord.
I used Red Heart Super Saver because I had it in the colors I needed, but more importantly I think it will stand up nicely for this project. Red Heart Super Saver is a great choice for so many projects because it is readily available in most craft stores, as well as on line directly from RedHeart.com, it’s easy care, holds up well, is soft but sturdy and comes in a huge range of colors! Of course you may use any worsted weight acrylic yarn you like and I’m sure even a worsted cotton would generate good results.
