Felt Food: Ravioli

Felt Ravioli by Laura Bray
Here's another play kitchen idea for you!  Felt ravioli!  Makes me hungry just thinking about it!  Here's how to make them.

  • White or cream colored felt
  • Stuffing
  • Red felt
  • White embroidery floss
  • Sewing machine

  1. Cut white or cream felt into 2" x 2" squares.  You'll need two squares per ravioli. 
  2. Place the squares together and stitch 1/4" in from the edge.  Leave one side open.
  3. Stuff with polyfil or stuffing of your choice.  Sew last side closed.
  4. Using pinking shears, cut round the edges of the ravioli.
  1. Cut a free form, amoeba-like shape from the red felt.
  2. Embroider on Parmesan cheese with white embroidery floss.  I did a straight stitch because that's what our Parmesan looks like.  If you buy grated Parmesan, you might want to do french knots.
To store, I bought some foil containers with lids at the grocery store.  And, yes, I actually delude myself into thinking they will be carefully put away after playtime.  Hope spring eternal.
