There's a reason that redheads are called carrot top :D

And I don't mean THIS Carrot Top!  I mean THESE carrot tops :)

(Collage created in this program)  My 3 carrot zipper pouches - tutorial here :)
 Aren't they cute?  I made mine a touch smaller than she did, to use the zippers I had on hand.  I cut the fabrics to 5" x 10", quilted them with regular quilt batting, then trimmed them down to 4.5" x 9".   Vanessa's video is very well done - I would say it's aimed at beginners.  I have to poke through her other stuff to see what else she has gotten up to - I'm really pleased with my carrots, lol.  Thank you Vanessa from Crafty Gemini Creates (website here, and youtube videos here)!

Is anyone else seeing carrot zippies in "heirloom" colours now, or is it just me?  ;)

Photo nabbed from Candace Cooks - she posted a cool recipe for Honey Roasted Heirloom Carrots that sounds pretty delicious - I should try it :D  I see the heirloom carrots @ Costco every time I'm there, but have never tried them!

Here's another project I recently finished - the pattern  (NAYY) is from Winterpeach on Craftsy - there are 3 designs in the one pattern - bunny (the one I did), chick and lamb :)  I expect I'll be doing all of them eventually - they're very cute :D  The original design is quite tiny, so I increased it to 150% - my bag finished to about 11" tall (not counting the ears), and the round base is about 7" wide.

Winterpeach bunny drawstring bag :)

What what - bunny butt!  Because I'm a 12 year old boy :)

Next time around I'm going to do a yoyo for the bunny tail, and stuff it a bit.  Or stitch a pompom onto a yoyo and then stitch it on - I think that would be cute :)

OOoooOO I just realized - both of these projects can be posted to Fiona's New to Me linky party for April - YAY :)


  1. These are brilliant Sandra and just perfect for Easter weekend :)

  2. Both projects are too cute, Sandra! I'd never seen heirloom carrots before. They look interesting, though! Hope you've enjoyed your day! XO

  3. Love the idea of heritage carrot zippies and the bunny bag is so cute! Lovely projects :)

  4. Super fun carrot zippies - would look great in heirloom colours. The bunny drawstring bag is adorable - don't know why, but I love his little feet
