Felt Food Recipes: Bow-tie Pasta

The first few years that I was married I think I made pasta for dinner three or four times a week. So it seems fitting to start our felt food-athon with pasta. Just like real food, felt pasta is easy. 

Today let's make some bow-tie pasta. You won't even need a sewing machine, but you will need:
  • 1 or 2 sheets of craft felt in a pasta color (I used "champagne")
  • fabric scissors or a rotary cutter
  • pinking shears
  • ruler
  • needle and coordinating thread

Start by cutting the felt into two inch strips, then cut them into 2 x 2 inch squares. You might want to cut a bunch and set some aside to make ravioli later. 

Cut each of the squares with the pinking shears on just two sides like this.

Then pinch and stitch together the middle. If you start between the first two folds you can hide the end of your thread.

That's all, see I told you it was easy. 

Now make ten or twenty more so you can have a whole bowl.  

See you next time for part II: ravioli. Thanks for reading.
