Pasta Presto

A few little makes for Ta-Dah Tuesday . Especially for you Lakota, 'cause I know how much you LOVE fake food ;-).

Firstly we have tortellini:

It's all gone too far-falle now:
 

 Eat your heart out Haba:
 (felt sheets from ebay, supporting vegetables from a well-known Swedish furniture retailer)

These tagliatelle (no, they're not chips that decided to stay in Britain for their holidays this year), are just thin strips of felt. There is a toy company that makes something very similar, that costs around £5 in the shops. Mine are a little irregular, but I don't think Baby Bird will be getting his ruler out to check. Said toy company also sells fancy farfalle in THREE different colours (show-offs) for around £7, but nothing I can't do with a sheet of felt, some pinking shears and a glue gun!

Tutorials for the tortellini and farfalle can be found here:

Well done, I bet little Bird loved playing with your creation and you had money in your purse for treating yourself instead! xxx

These are so sweet! Much better to save and make your own too.

Felt farfalle for £7? Blimey - how much real pasta would that buy?

Haha - I'm sure I've added the disclaimer that it's OK if it's meant as play food! So you get away with it perfectly (and it's very clever)
