I made mine a little different. I couldn't find cone shaped styrofoam at the one store in my town (Wally World). So I made the base of my carrots with cone shaped newspaper. Tape it off and cut the top flat. Then stuff it with more newspaper to stiffen it up and tape the top closed.
Take a chunk (technical term) of raffia, fold in half and glue to the top.

I ABSOLUTELY adore this fabric. I have it in pink too. I made several diaper bags out of it a few years ago. Thinking about making a few more, but no one seems to be having girls!
Pictures don't really do it justice, but I forgot to take any until I delivered the present, oops!~
On my second tent, I was feeling a little braver and added my own special touch. I call him "Baby Monkey". Not very clever, I know. I spent all my creativity making the darn thing.
I cut the monkey out on my cricut. It only took me 10 tries, but I finally found the wonder under that worked the best. ***Tip*** cut it fabric side down, that way the blade doesn't catch on the fabric.
I appliqued my cute baby monkey on the bottom right side on the contrasting fabric.
Anyway, I hope they love them as much as I did. I think they are a must for winter babies.
I made this with a placemat I found at the dollar store. I bought the fun fur and ribbon at craft store and only used a small amount. Thinking I'll make her a hairbow with the extra!
