This is what I’ve been up to this week. Can you believe this is made of felt??? It looks so freaking real. I still can’t get over it. It’s all going in a mini colander, wrapped in cellophane for Noah’s Easter basket. I decided last year I wanted to have something handmade in the kids Easter basket every year so when I came across this idea on Pinterest, I knew it would be the perfect gift for Noah this year. He loves playing with his kitchen and pretending to be a HuHot chef (his favorite restaurant). I think I’m going to cut some long strips to resemble linguini too.
I used this tutorial for the bowties and they were incredibly easy. I did them by hand since the felt was pretty thick after being folded and I didn’t want to break the needle on my sewing machine. The ravioli were made using this tutorial. I just made up the tortellini but there were a lot cuter versions on Pinterest. Noah won’t know, or care, that they don’t look just right so I’m good with them. Hope this inspires you to do a little DIY this weekend.
