Making Simple Felt Ice Pop Holders

Today I am sharing with you a quick tutorial on how to make felt ice pop (or frozen yogurt) holders.  My kids were forever using up napkins and paper towels to keep their fingers from freezing while eating their pops.  I figured out how to make a simple version and want to share it with you.  The project literally takes 15 minutes from start to finish.  They are that simple.  And, they are a great way to use up scrap felt you may have lying around.

Supplies needed:

Scrap felt (they need to be at least 10 inches in length and 4 inches in width)
Scissors, both pinking and regular
or, Rotary cutter with pinking blade, if preferred over the scissors
Matching thread

Cut your felt into 10 by 3 1/2 inch strips.

Fold in half and sew on each long edge with a 1/4" seam allowance.

Take your pinking scissors or rotary cutter and fancy up the edges on the outside edge of the pocket.

Now your pocket is complete.  Make as many as you want in as many colors as you want.

And, that's it.  You're done.  The kids love they have something to hold their pops in and keep their fingers warm.  I love it because we are not wasting paper towels and napkins on their pops.  And, they are completely washable.  Win win all the way around.

Happy Sewing!
