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!)
What a cute idea! Thanks for the tutorial! (Visiting from EtsyKids)

Wickedly cute! Planning on making felt foods for my Granddaughter for Christmas. This will be sure to delight her. Following your blog from Take A Look Tuesday. Pop on over to Wiccan Make Some Too when you can & say “hi”.
How do I print out a pattern of it that is full sized? When I print it, it fits to the page, which would make it come out too small.
The pattern should should about fit onto A4 sized paper. The finished ice cream is about 13cm tall.
If you do want a bigger version send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will email you back a larger version.
Thanks everyone for checking out the tutorial!
I’d love for you to link this up at my Felt Food Roundup on OneCreativeMommy.com. I hope to see you there!
I’m off to see your post with sprinkles.
