Today I went to Hobby Lobby and bought like forty thousand pieces of felt. It cost me a little over $2. (You know, the purists say to use wool felt, but I figured I would probably ruin the first two or ten things I made, so why spend the money?)
Okay. Here is how it all went down.
First, I made a list of all the foods I wanted to make. I intentionally left out fancy cupcakes, peelable bananas, sushi, and edamame. I have lots of different things on my list, but I decided to start today with raviolis, because they seemed like the easiest to make.
I started the day by sewing my finger up in the sewing machine.
Psych. I totally staged that pic.
Okay what I did was make a little pattern, and traced them on the sheet. I forgot to take a picture of that, but basically it was six squares on a piece of felt. Then I traced a smaller square in the middle of them, and that was where the stuffing went.
I sewed them up....
Then I stuffed them...
Then I cut them out with pinking shears, to make the edge all crinkly, but I didn't take a picture because I was busy cutting, and cutting is an issue for me.
Now, I just want you to know, I am craft-retarded. I know, we aren't supposed to say the "r" word. But I am. If there was a Special Olympics for crafts, I would be the biggest loser there. It's true.
But even I, the least craftiest, most un-creative, donut hole thinkin' person, can make felt ravioli.
Award winning? No. But will seven and four year old little girls love them? YES. I made six of these, and then I went on to make these:
Check it out, I even hand sewed the yolks on. Like, with a needle and thread.
Don't even act like you're not impressed.
Oh and I can't forget to give mad props to my mom, who put up with my craft retardedness, and who showed me how to do this, and who let me use her sewing machine and stuff.
