Carrot Barrettes

It's spring! Well......almost....except for the fact that it snowed today. Anyways, I made Ry-pie some cute little carrot barrettes. What's up doc?

Orange and green felt
Hand sewing needle and thread
Snap barrette

Cut two rectangles from the orange fabric

Then cut a small slit into the center of one of the felt rectangles.

Now slide the opened bottom part of the barrette into the slit like this...

Then just place the other felt rectangle on top to sandwich the barrette between the felt pieces.
Now take your needle and thread, and stitch all around the barrette, as close to the actual barrette as you can.

Now just trim the excess felt around the entire barrette, as close to the stitching as you can get with out cutting into the stitched part.

Lastly, cut out your little carrot stem using the green felt and glue to the top of your carrot. Now just ooh and aah over the cuteness! :)
