DIY felt bowtie pasta tutorial... with a printable box!

A couple of months ago, I wrote on my Facebook page that I was working on a project that just made me laugh… over and over again, the whole time I was making it. I’m certainly not the first person to make felt bowtie pasta (farfalle, in Italian), but throw in an authentic-looking pasta box, complete with a see-through window, and I promise that you will be smiling, too!

I think we can all agree that felt food is pretty fun, but it’s not always beginner-friendly. But you can’t get much easier than this butterfly pasta. And it’s hand-sewn, so no sewing machine necessary! It’s perfect for little hands to play with…

…but still looks incredibly realistic! Just yesterday, my daughter fooled a couple of friends with this, and they couldn’t believe that it wasn’t real pasta!

You can sew up the pasta while watching TV because it takes minimal attention, and print out the adorable little boxes (available in two sizes). Wouldn’t this make a great gift? I’m currently working on making more of these to give to the little ones of friends and family.

I’m super excited that this project is being hosted by the incredible sewing website, Sew Mama Sew, following a wonderful series on sewing softies (a.k.a. stuffed toys) and another adorable felt food tutorial! So head on over to Sew Mama Sew for the DIY felt bowtie pasta tutorial… AND the downloadable Cucicucicoo Pasta box!

  1. Oh, my goodness – I can’t believe how realistic they look! And the box, too- what a fabulous extra touch! My boys would have loved this when they were little!

  2. Very cute. My girls are too old to play kitchens now, but I thought a chang of colour, a hair clip, perhaps some glitter or beads (for youngest one) and hey presto Home Made Hair Dressing!!

  3. These are so cute, and I keep looking everywhere to try to find the tutorial and I can’t find it anywhere. Would you be able to share it with me?

    • You are absolutely right, Cristina. I don’t know why, but Sew Mama Sew is no longer in existence, so I need to rewrite the tutorial to publish here. I will do it soon, promise!

    • You’re absolutely right, Amy, and it has been on my list of things to do to add it to my own free resources, but I’ve been so busy with my day job that I haven’t been able to get around to it. I’ll send you a private email with the file!

  4. Bonjour!
    Je voulais tellement pouvoir faire les pâtes ainsi que les présenter dans la boîte mais le lien ne fonctionne plus.
    Pourriez-vous m’aider, SVP? Merci!

    • Yes, Nadine, you are absolutely right. The website that originally published this tutorial went offline for a few years at least and now came back, but different and without this tutorial. I need to get everything ready to publish on my own here, but I need to change a few things on it first.

    • Hi Rhonda! Sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you, but I was hoping to have a better answer for you sooner! This tutorial and the box PDF were originally offered on another blog, which is no longer available. I have been getting a lot of requests for it lately, so I am planning on reworking it and updating the tutorial in February. I will let you know when it’s ready!
