Now call me crazy, but when I looked at this set, I saw pasta! Felt pasta! We have some teenies in our family and I love making them homemade gifts. Nothing says love from Auntie JJ like a handmade gift:) This set was just PERFECT for making felt pasta.
The pinked circle and pinked square dies make great ravioli and bowtie pasta. As you can see, I did regular, spinach, and squash pasta;) For the ravioli, just cut two pieces, stuff with a little pillow filler (or scrap felt), and sew up. For the bowtie, I just cut a square, folded it, and then tacked down the middle. This is a great project for any level of sewist (I hate the word "sewers", lol!).
I put all my little yummies into a muslin bag that I gussied up with a label. I couldn't resist using "Auntie Pasta";) To make my label, I used the large pinked rectangle and cut out letters with the new Avery's Alpha Dies. I used Aleene's glue for the letters. This glue works really, really well with felt. And the dies cut felt like butter!
And to end this post, here's the teenies that inspired this play food and will be getting "Auntie Pasta"!
My lovely teamies have some fantastic projects! Go check them out now!
