Easy No-Sew Sherpa Carrots

 I had to do it... the fabric in the donation bin was just too cute to give away so I'm repurposing it for Spring!

I began with this great orange plaid sherpa jacket.

Man, I wish I wore this size because it's adorable but I don't so... I'm going to recycle it! 

I cut off one sleeve of the sherpa jacket and squared off the ends.

Next, I cut the sleeve diagonally so I had 2 long triangles.

I used hot glue and ran a bead all the way down the cut end of each triangle on the fluffy side of the fabric. 

I let the hot glue dry very well then turned the triangle right side in.

I stuffed the sherpa pieces with pillow stuffing and pushed it down to the carrot point with a chop stick.

I grabbed a bunch of raffia and made a bundle, trimmed the top of the bundle with scissors for a flat top.

I stuck the bundle of raffia into the top of the stuffed carrot and used a zip tie to pull it as tight as I could. 

Next, I tied a black and white gingham ribbon around the zip tie and I was done!

They look adorable in the damaged wooden bowl I saved a few years ago.

Easter around here is not very warm so these sherpa carrots will be great!
