These turned out very cute! These aren't just for the kids. I made these to take to work at Easter-time (all adults). I displayed them in a large basket as suggested and it looked great. Everyone loved them.

I saw this project elsewhere on the web and made a version by sewing a plastic freezer bag (I posted a tutorial at http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/easter_bunny_carrots) as I only needed 4 "carrots for my son's Easter Basket, but can vouch that this is a great alternative to all to filling an Easter basket with candy and was a hit with my son.
