I knit and felted the body of the carrot as well as the light green leafs on top. The darker green leaves are acrylic felt that i embroidered and the brownish leaf is cotton material. I attached the leaves on the body and used an old t-shirt to make the knobby top of the carrot as well as the roots. I finished off with a little embroidering on the body of the carrot and chocked it full of poly-fil. this is my very first venture into embroidery, stuffed  softy things and crafster. It stands over 5 feet tall. Hope you like it and I'd love some feedback!

well it was a very off and on project. more off than on really. so i stretched it out over a few months. but all in all probably about 25-30 hours.

Awesome project!

The little roots at the bottom are a little off putting for me. Apart from that I love this!!

That is brilliant! It makes me smile - partially because it's adorable and partially because it makes me think of Corporal Carrot from Discworld  Grin
