Felt Farfalle (Bowtie) Pasta


More playfood, this is ridiculously easy to make. You may notice that the finished pasta is a different color than the in-process pasta… My daughter broke my last felting needle while I was wraping the second-to-last felting needle that I had just broken in tape to throw it away… Oy. Her punishment was having to go to the (boring) quilting store to buy me new felting needles. (^_^)

Fold felt into a W the long way, and needle felt, stitch, or heck, glue, in the middle. If you needle felt, don't felt it too much or you will thin the felt and it will rip.

 

Done! Wasn’t that easy? And aren’t they cute? I don’t know how well they’ll hold up to a playful two year old, I’ll have to wait and see…
