Carrot Toys from fabric scraps

I up-cycled scraps from old clothing into play food carrots.

The orange material is from a wool sweater I used for an up-cycled dress.  

A wedge shape (with a bump on top for the top of the carrot) is easily sewn into a carrot.  While sewing with scraps from knits, no two will be alike.

Cut into the pieces of green and pull on the strips to create textured curls.

I made sure to add some crinkly material to the stuffing to keep my baby interested in them.  My idea is that these will be a part of her play kitchen in the future.  I like the idea of fabric play food, since we try to decrease the amount of plastic in our house.

For now, they will be a fun addition to this year's Easter basket!
