31 Days: Day 30 - Felt Food

 Today's gift is for a young child - I would say little girl, but to be honest my son gets just as much joy out playing with the kitchen and pretend food.  I did an easy one today, because I want to see if I could figure this one out for doing for our MOPS group this year.  I think that it would be fun to make some pasta for our toddlers.  I found this wonderful site that has a list of free tutorials, so find the food you'd like to make for your little one here.
 I am going to show you bow-tie pasta.  Cut a 1 1/2" strip of felt of your choice.  I am making whole wheat pasta today.  The green kind looked really cute in the tutorial I used.  The tutorial said to cut the strip first and then use the pinking shears to make the edge, but I used the pinking shears to cut it and saved myself a step.
 Then use a regular scissors to cut 1 inch wide strips.
 I first tried to sew the bow-ties together, but found it hard to hide the knots.  I went to fabric glue and had a moment of brilliance!  I used clothes pins to hold it in place!  You want to fold the bow-tie into a W shape.
Here's my new invention for a tool!  lol!
Here's what it looks like when it's done.  This is the sewn one - the rest are drying as of this post.

Hope you enjoyed this idea.  Tomorrow is the final post in this 31 Days series.  I am hoping that you will find it helpful with plenty of time to get them done before the end of the holiday season.

Please visit the blogs at the right that I love to link up to.  Also, don't forget that I am offering free shipping in my Etsy shop until the end of tomorrow to my readers if you use this code: 31DAYS.
