Summer fun time! And just what everyone wants with this warm weather is a felt ice cream cone!!!
You will need:
- White felt
- Cream or cookie coloured felt
- Toy stuffing
- Thread, scissors & sewing machine
- This pattern
To give the cone a real cone like texture we are going to sew lines across it with the sewing machine. They do not need to be perfect but about 1cm apart gives it a good look.
Now fold the cone piece in half, right sides together and sew along the edge. Turn right way out.
Now to add the ice cream “drip”. Wrap your ice cream drip around the cone (with it right way out) and pin it into place.
Now sew around the top edge securing the ice cream drip to the cone.
Now to make the ice cream!
Take your circle of felt and do a running stitch all the way around the edge. (sorry this picture came out terrible)
Start to pull the thread tighter and add some stuffing in side it to make a “ball” shape. When you pulled the thread as much as you can (it can be difficult if using a thick felt) do some stitches back and fourth on top to secure it all.
Lastly to attach the ice cream to the cone use a ladder stitch to sew the two together. Before you go all the way around add some toy stuffing to the cone.
Thats it! Yummy! You can also decorate your ice cream with sprinkles, cherries or strawberries (see my other tutorial for them!)
