Mickey Waffle Felt Ornament

This is not always an easy snack to find at a Disney park, but Mickey waffles are highly regarded. Which is why you should absolutely make a felt ornament version so you always have this favorite treat close by. I will admit that this isn't EXACTLY what a Mickey waffle looks like. But I made it my own style and I think it's so cute this way!

In this series of free patterns, I'm making classic Disney snacks out of felt and turning them into little appliquéd ornaments. This is the second snack, and you can find the first one, popcorn, right here.

These are minimalist patterns, in that there aren't full step-by-step photos, but you'll find an overview below. And if you've ever made any of my other felt ornaments before, you'll already know what to do!

Before we get to the pattern and process, let's take this ornament on a little vacation...

On my last trip to Disneyland, I didn't find a Mickey waffle, but I did spy some "G'warffle Mix" in the window of the Good Boy! Grocers in Toontown. Surely you could make some Mickey waffles with that mix, right?

Actually, I've heard that Tokyo Disneyland is the best place to get a Mickey waffle. Apparently you have to wait awhile, but you get to see them making the waffles fresh and that they are soooo tasty! But then, I've also seen photos of churro Mickey waffles, and that sounds pretty amazing. Mickey Waffle Felt Ornament

If you haven't made one of my appliqué ornaments before, I recommend watching my YouTube video showing an ornament from start to finish. It's from another pattern, but the process is the same.

Here's how I made the Mickey waffle:

First, this is wool blend felt from Benzie Design (affiliate link). I cut the circles with my Circles and Scallops die, also from them, but you can use the circle templates in the PDF with plain or decorative scissors if you'd like.

I cut the pieces with freezer paper, and I embroidered the details through the paper before carefully tearing it away.

Next, I layered the pieces and stitched them down to the front circle with a tiny whip stitch and two strands of embroidery floss.

To assemble the ornament I used running stitch around the edges, then I filled in with a second round of running stitch. This is technically holbein stitch and it looks the same on the front and back.

Then I just used embroidery floss to make a little hanger. There's a pretty good chance that I'll be filling at least a small Christmas tree with these ornaments this year!

All these needs now is a little bit of syrup!
