This week's posting is an easy one (well, I think they've all been super easy, but this one is really fast). Pasta Ravioli. Bella has been begging for me to make her some pasta for a little while now. I was going to finish it off with a small felt bag to keep the pasta in, but then found the brown paper bag in the cupboard, stamped the title and closed it at the top with a sweet teeny tiny peg.
Step 1: Cut out the ravioli (5cm X 5cm square) using pinking shears (crinkle cut scissors) for the edges. I fancied the finish that the pinking shears gave, but you could always use normal scissors if you didn't have any handy and just have straight lines. Remember little ones won't mind if it's straight or crinkle cut, just so long as it resembles ravioli.
Step 2: Machine stitch around 3 edges of the ravioli. I used my machine foot as a guide, keeping it on the edge of the felt as I sewed around. Basically the finished machine square measures 3cm X 3cm - you could always draw this on before machining with a fabric pencil or pen if you are super fussy :))
Step 3: Lift up your machine foot once you've stitched the three sides and carefully poke a little stuffing in the ravioli. Machine stitch the fourth edge closed.
You now have ravioli ready to play with :)) I made 16 ravioli squares in various shades of felt (cream, soft tan and a slighter darker tan) which seemed like a nice quantity to have when we popped them in the bowl for monkey to munch on.
Before I sign off for today I wanted to share a very yummy plate of food that Martine from Belgium made using my tutorials. They look fabuluos Martine :))
