Has anyone made any? It looks pretty easy....I just need a pattern if anyone can help me. A friend of mine has some felt farfalle on her daughter's birthday wishlist and it is soooo cute, but $10 so I figure I can make her a few things for that price. I found 24 9x12 pieces of wool/rayon felt for $20. Is that good??

It's really easy!

Here's a thread over on the craft tutorial board:

I'm not sure about your price on the wool/rayon felt.

I buy 100% wool from Weir Dolls & Crafts at $1.95 for 9" x 12". Wait a minute, on their site it's $1.75/sheet for the rayon/wool blend. I guess your price is a good one!

Ditto what KariM said! I think just by looking at what others' have made that you could figure it out. Here's a great link for pictures: http://www.flickr.com/groups/handmadefeltfood/pool/ .

ETA: Some good sturdy stabilizer will help tremendously too!
