Paper Plate Stitching

This is the last part for the “Noodles” series. You can check out the first two parts here (for something delicious) and here (for drawing inspiration).

Ini bagian terakhir untuk seri “Noodles”. Anda dapat melihat 2 postingan lainnya di sini (untuk resep) dan sini (untuk ilustrasi).

Eating too much instant noodles makes me forget that various types of noodles do exist. When the theme “noodles” was decided, all I could think of is that delicious yellow block. Maybe it’s the braid shape or maybe it’s the love for the seasoning packet that I decided to do this “noodle stitching” on a paper plate (I wanted to use real noodles but then again, I don’t want to waste good noodles).

Mungkin karena kebanyakan makan i*d*mie, saat tema mie diputuskan, yang terpikir langsung mie instan kuning keriting petak yang fenomenal itu. Mungkin karena bentuknya juga, saya mencoba untuk mengkreasikan bentuk mie dalam craft pada piring kertas ini.

For this noodle dish, we will need a paper plate (foam type works better!), stitching thread and a needle.

Kita akan membutuhkan satu piring kertas (kalau bisa, milih yang tipe busa), jarum dan benang sulam.

You can skip this step if your desired design doesn’t include repetitive patterns or you prefer to do it free hand (me here just having free time on hand instead).

Langkah ini bisa diabaikan bila desain yang anda inginkan bukan motif yang harus diukur atau anda lebih suka mengerjakannya sambil disesuaikan.

Start stitching your design onto the plate.

Mulailah menyulam pada piring kertas anda.

I’m no avid stitch-er so I can only do basic straight line stitches. I used 3 different line designs and colors just to make it look merrier. But, if you are a master, this paper plate canvas is all yours to experiment with 😉

Saya bukan ahli di bidang menyulam jadi cuma bisa nyulam garis lurus dengan berbagai bentuk dan warna supaya tampak rame. Tapi, kalau anda bisa berbagai tehnik menyulam, piring kertas ini bisa jadi salah satu medium untuk eksperimen anda.

Just to make it more “noodles”, I cut up some bamboo chopsticks to makes some dangling ornaments like what we have on a dream-catcher. (Note: this is just a regional thing; some people eat their noodles with chopsticks)

Supaya tema “mie”-nya terasa lebih kental, saya memotong sumpit bambu untuk dijadikan aksesoris tambahan (terinspirasi dari dream-catcher).

Tie the chopped chopsticks to the plate and give it a loophole for hooking purpose if needed.

Ikat sumpit pada piring dan beri gantungan di atasnya bila diperlukan.
