These are very simple and easy crafts to make, so I’m not writing lengthy explanations. Once you cut out the patterns you’re half way there!
I turned this DIY felt ice cream into a tree ornament, but you could also omit the string loop and it instantly becomes felt play food! Or make a dozen of them and string them together into a sweet garland.
I didn’t add any sprinkle details to this DIY ice cream, but you totally could!
DIY Felt Ice Cream
Felt – I used this felt in Seaside, Thistle and Swan. I used this 100% wool felt in Cocoa for the cone.
Polyfil or wool stuffing
Tweezers – for easier stuffing
Embroidery Thread – to match
8″ String – optional
Printed pattern – make sure you print it at 100% so the sizing is correct. (Get the pattern at the bottom of this post.)
Embroidery scissors or snips
Use a straight stitch in a matching colour to create the waffle-y stitches that secure the cone to the backing. Forgive my wonky stitches, I thought I could eyeball the stitch placement instead of actually measuring and marking. Lol.
Don’t be like me, measure and mark.
Note: The darker brown cone is not supposed to go all the way to the edges of the backing. Make sure you position it with room around the edges for the blanket stitching later on.
Use a single matching thread and a backstitch to sew the first ball of ice cream in place. Then layer and stitch the next ball on top.
Use a blanket stitch and 2 strands of thread to stitch the front and back together. Start at around the 10 o’clock mark on the top ball of ice cream, stitch around to the other side and use the tweezers to gently stuff it as you go around.
Step 4 (Optional)
Add a loop of string before you seal up the ice cream if you want to use it as an ornament.
I mean, look at this cutie!
