Our collection of felt play food projects has been growing lately, so we’ve decided it needed its own category page on our site! This month’s theme is all about the creative adventures you can go on, and that includes imaginative play for kids. For our June collection, Krista has designed these adorable felt waffles, complete with pats of butter, syrup, fruit, and whipped cream. Yum!
As far as skill level goes, these felt waffles are somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate project. The waffles require a lot of time in assembly due to their signature squares, but all of the waffle toppings are simple to make in comparison.

If you’re creating a “camping at home” adventure for your family, we think these felt waffles are a great addition. While you’re cooking up some breakfast the next morning, they can make their own waffles and choose their toppings. Along with the waffles, we also have some fun felt coffee and hot cocoa creations and more felt breakfast foods. Plus you can’t forget the felt utensils and cookware!
When you’re ready to make these felt waffles, we recommend cutting the patterns by hand with detail scissors for a more precise cut. However, if you want to use your Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4, you can download our SVG file and use the rotary blade to cut your felt pieces.

How to Make Felt Waffles
- Gather your craft tools and materials. Then download the pattern below.
- Cut out felt according to the pattern using scissors (recommended) or a Cricut Maker (optional).
- Using your PDF template as a guide, draw the first three lines on your largest felt waffle piece using a disappearing ink pen. You can also go by the measurements on the PDF for even more accuracy.
- Fold the felt in half along the middle line and pin in place. Using one strand of matching embroidery floss, sew a double running stitch following the bottom lines. You should have a solid stitched line that looks identical on both sides of the folded felt.
