No-Sew Felt Tortellini Pasta: 12 Days After Christmas
I had been doing well keeping up the pace with my after Christmas posts, but then the weekend hit, so here I'm back. We'll see how often I keep on posting since I'm not officially on the sub-list and can get called in any day now. My camera was actually behaving fairly well the night I made these, so only half of the pictures are blurry. ;)
So here is the third installment of felt food and again, I used one of Angie's tutorials on Treasures for Tots. This time it's the Tortellini. I just can't get over how real they look, and they're SO easy. You don't even have to sew to make these!
I've put some pictures up here, but Angie's are a lot better, so you should check her's out too. The main "improvement" I feel like I made on her instructions are using the pliers, especially in the last step. Otherwise I followed her directions exactly...I even actually used cotton balls instead of trying to use diced up felt scraps for this one.
Materials: 3 in felt squares (You can get 12 out of a piece of craft felt.), cotton balls, glue gun
For any step where you are waiting for the glue to cool, I used a pair of pliers to hold it while I worked on another one. You want to keep the pliers a bit loose, though, because if you hold it too tight, you'll see the square shape of the pliers when you let go.
Stretch the cotton ball out a bit and put it in the middle of your felt. Put a dab of glue on the top corner.
Fold in half to make a triangle.
Put a strip of glue along one side. Press and hold together.
Repeat for the second side.
Roll it up a bit so it looks like this:
Put a dab of glue on one side like this.
Fold the other side over, so it overlaps the glue...and hold.
