Pancakes to Play With!

Make your own pancakes to play with in nearly the same time as it would take to make the real thing!

To make the paper pattern for these I drew around the base of a plastic tub  - roughly the size you want the pancakes to be and then add on a seam allowance, approx 1cm. 

Use this paper pattern to cut out six circles in the lighter coloured fabric (this will make 3 pancakes).

Next, cut a smaller paper circle but don't add a seam allowance as this fabric will be appliqued on.  Cut six smaller circles in the darker fabric.

Applique the smaller circles onto the larger ones using either a straight stitch or zig-zag, whichever you prefer.

Now put the right sides of each pancake together and stitch around each circle, leaving a gap of about 3-4cm.  

Trim the seam and turn through.

Push in a circle of wadding (to make the pancakes look a little padded) if you want to and then hand stitch the opening to close it.

That's it!  Serve with pretend strawberries and cream!
