Cute summer inspired Ice Cream & Ice Pop softies that can double up as cushions. Easy to sew up and can be made in a variety of materials, in his tutorial I have used felt, but they can also be made in cotton, wool, or maybe upcycle colourful teeshirts. Perfect for picnics or on long days at the beach, they double up as a set of softies or a set of comfy small cushions.

To Make the Ice Pop

Download and print out the ice pop pattern at 100 % on A4 paper. Cut out 2 deep pink from pattern A, and 2 light pink & 2 yellow from the pattern B downloaded. Also cut out 2 pink cheeks and 2 black eyes.

Using the pattern as a guide position the cheeks and eyes onto the deep pink felt section of the Ice Pop. Whipstitch appliqué the cheeks into position using 2 strands of the pink embroidery thread/floss. Whipstitch applique the eyes into position again using 2 strands of the black embroidery thread/floss.

Using the face pattern as a rough guide, fill in the eyebrows and the mouth with a backstitch. Use 4 strands of embroidery thread/floss to work the backstitch and the needle with the large eye.

Line up the deep pink and the light pink felt material pieces right side to right side and pin together as show in the picture below.

Machine sew together along the pinned line only, leaving a ¼” seam allowance.

Line up the light pink and the lemon felt material pieces right side to right side and pin together.

Machine sew together along the pinned line only, leaving a ¼” seam allowance.

Open up the entire Ice Pop felt piece and pin together, material right side to side. Mark out a 2” opening at the bottom end of the softie and pin.

Machine sew around the entire circumference leaving a ¼” seam allowance. Remember to leave the opening at the base of the Ice Pop for turning and stuffing.

Trim off the excess felt at the bottom two corners and turn the Ice Pop right side out.

Stuff the Ice Pop Softie with the craft filler.

Close the opening using a Ladder stitch.

Ice Cream Softie

Download and print out the Ice Cream pattern at 100 % on A4 paper. Cut out 2 pink ice cream sections and 2 cone sections from the patterns downloaded. Also cut out 2 pink cheeks and 2 black eyes.

Using the pattern as a guide position the cheeks and eyes onto the top section of the Ice Cream. Whipstitch appliqué the cheeks into position using 2 strands of the pink embroidery thread/floss. Whipstitch appliqué the eyes into position again using 2 strands of the black embroidery thread/floss. Fill in the eyebrows and the mouth with a backstitch. Use 4 strands of embroidery thread/floss to work the backstitch and the needle with the large eye.

Pin the Ice Cream section to the cone section, making sure they are mirror opposites of each other.

Machine-sew the ice cream to the cone along the pinned line, using the cream machine thread.

Place the two sides of the Ice Cream together, material facing right side to right side and pin. Take note of the space to leave open for turning and stuffing on the pattern.

Machine-sew around the entire circumference, taking your time on the curved sections.

Turn the Ice Cream right side out using the chopstick to smooth out the curved areas gently.

Stuff with the craft filler, the chopstick can be used to manoeuvre the filler into the corners.

Close the opening with the ladder stitch.
