tutorial: fabric bow pasta



something's cooking in the kitchen!
can you see what it is?
go on take a closer look.
mmm garden flavored bow pasta!
sure to be a delight in anyone's kitchen!
cook it....
drain it...
and serve it!


want to make some for your little darlin's kitchen too?

what you will need:
*5 by 5 squares of fabric in greens, reds, yellows, creams, and orange.
each square makes two fabric bow pastas.


take your 5 by 5 square.
fold it in half...cut at your fold.
fold it in half again and cut at that fold as well.
sew around your edges
take a needle and thread and do a running stitch through the middle.
pull tight and wrap around a few times the thread in the middle and tie a knot in the back.

bon appetit! too bad real pasta isn't this low in carbs and calories.
oh well.

have a great day.
i'm actually cooking something in MY kitchen today...maybe i'll share it if i get a chance!
we'll talk soon!

This is great! I am sewing raviolis out of felt and stuffing right now for my kids. I love this idea to add some color.

This is great! I love these projects - makes me wish I was pregnant with a girl rather than a boy! I might start making some of these with the hope of having a little girl someday or to give to friends with girls...

What a fun idea! I was just thinking of the "felt cheez-its" that were floating around a while ago... I'll add this to my food list :)

Hi
These are wonderful. Used a fabulous new a pasta pan which is great at draining all pasta and vegetables too. I don't know why more people don't use one.

I love making fabric food for my kids. I've made bow pasta before, but I made it with light brown felt so I wouldn't have to worry about fabric fraying. I'm loving your colorful ones, though!

Beth said...

So very cute!!

Did you make the kitchen too?? If so, would you share the details on how you made it??? Please

Blessings

I'm Brazilian and this is the first time I visit this place. I'm mesmerized. Everything is so beautiful and well-done... I wish I could sew too but I'm not the sewing person! By the way, the fabric food is beautiful. I loved it. I'll ask mom to make them for my students! Thanks a lot for sharing.

Courtney Dirks said...

This is the first time I've had a strong desire to eat fabric. Seriously!
