Black Felt (about 1/2 yard will be more than enough)
Any fabric flower (I used one from Basic Grey available on our website)
Orange Felt (I just bought a piece of it)
Dowel (I got a dowel from the wood craft aisle at Joannes and it was already 12" long)
Green Ribbon Piece
6" Strip of Fleece
Small pebbles from your yard (or the craft store if your yard is buried in the snow!)
2 Black large Buttons for the Eyes
6 Medium Buttons for the body
Cut felt into a 10.5" circle, cut a 6.75" circle in the center of the hat.
Cut an 6.5" circle for the top of the hat.
Cut a rectangle to be 6" wide and 23" long. Fold it in half and sew a .25" seam on the edge to make into a cylinder.
With the cylinder still wrong side out, pin the 6.5" circle and sew it to the top of the hat.
Turn the hat right side out.
Pin then sew the hat to the inside circle on the brim of the hat.
Attach the flower if desired.
Fold the carrot into a triangle the shape you like and pin then cut.
Sew along the bottom of the triangle as close to the bottom as possible.
Put a small amount of batting into the tip of your carrot and then stuff it in with the dowel.
Add more stuffing around the dowel until your carrot is nice and full.
Use a green ribbon to tie the edge of the carrot around the dowel.
Most fleece comes long enough that you may just need to touch up the cutting job from the fabric store if you only bought 6".
Cut the edges of the scarf to add "fringe"
Find pebbles in your yard or at the craft store.
Paint black with black paint!
Have fun playing in the snow with your kids
