Re-post of the tutorial originally posted here.

Nothing better than waffles for breakfast on a Saturday morning, right? Well, if they were smothered in strawberries and whipped cream, maybe. Or syrup and butter, as Rory prefers it. Sadie likes hers with jam on top.
 



Sorry to get you all hungry. Here’s some fake waffles to look at. ;) Oh, do you wanna know how to make it, too? Well, if I must….

You’ll need:

batting
brown/tan fabric
disappearing ink pen is handy
sewing stuff

First, cut your pieces of fabric and batting. I used three layers of batting per waffle, so cut that, plus two of the tan fabric. I cut mine 6 inches x 6 inches, but you of course could go smaller or larger.

Lay your pieces out like this: your pieces of batting, then both pieces of fabric on top, right sides together. pin together.

Then sew around with 1/2 seam (I know that in the picture the seam is smaller, that’s because I made it a bit smaller after turning it right side out)

clip your corners…

and turn right side out. I use a chopstick, it’s great for getting those corners!

Slipstitch your opening close.

Next, I cut a little piece of cardboard out-3/4 inch square, and using a disappearing ink pen, traced nine squares like so. (not pictured) sew around squares…whala!

(almost) insta-waffle!

 cute, no?
