Video Project: Reusable Carrot Easter Bag

By:

Make a reusable Easter bag that stuffs into its own carrot pocket for easy storage. This reusable Easter bag is made from bed sheets and is a great alternative to purchasing plastic bags or baskets this Easter. Project designed by Cristin Frank.


 


Materials:

  • Bed Sheet
  • Fabric Pencil
  • Sewing Machine
  • Ribbon (1” wide) or Double Bias Tape

For the Carrot Pocket:

  • Small draw string bag + orange and green markers
  • OR orange and green fabric and thin ribbon for drawstring


Instructions:

  1. Cut a 40” x 14” square out of the bed sheet & fold in ½ to be 14”x20.
     
  2. Make a template for the bag handles using a piece of cardboard. Trace on fabric using a fabric pencil.
     
  3. Cut out bag handles.
     
  4. Prepare carrot drawstring pocket by coloring an exiting bag or by making one with fabric. Bag height will be about 7.”
     
  5. Turn the carrot inside out so raw edges are exposed on the outside of the reusable bag. When the bag stuffs into the carrot pocket, the carrot turns inside right. Sew the carrot along its sides (triangle with open top) to the outside of the bag.
     
  6. With bag folded to 14”x20” with the right side facing out, place a pin 2” up on each side from the bottom fold.
     
  7. Fold the front of the bag down, letting it catch on the pins. Pick it up at the pins so the back will fall down as well. The bottom of the bag should have 4 layers of fabric accordion folded. Now sew up the sides of the bag.
     
  8. Pin a double hem (iron down if you’d like) and sew around the top opening of the bag.
     
  9. Iron the 1” wide ribbon in half and sew around the inside circular bag handles.
