I've made carrots from fabric & filled them with Easter goodies.  They're easy to make & take only minutes.  Orange fabric, tulle, lace & ribbon is all it takes.  They'd be great as a treat for school kids.  I've included instructions & a pattern.


9" x 5" orange fabric (I use cotton/poly)
9" x5"  orange or gold tulle
10" gathered dark green craft lace (2" wide)
      (Or use 30" of 1" wide lace sewn together lengthwise as in the photo.)
12" of 3mm (1/4") wide ribbon or smaller

Finish all raw edges of seams.  (I zigzag the edges of the seams.)

Cut 1 pattern piece of tulle and one of orange fabric. 
Pin the two pieces together and sew one side seam. 
Lay out flat and sew lace to top edge of fabric. 
Fold in half (right sides together) and sew the remaining seam, including the lace.  Turn.
Thread the ribbon through a needle with a large eye. 
Weave the ribbon through the lace right above the seam as shown in the photo.
Fill the carrot with wrapped candy, gather and tie a bow.  (I use one marshmallow bunny for the front and fill the rest with chocolate eggs.
