We all scream for {Ice Cream!} Felties

I love all the cute Felt food. But oh the time.   My little girl loves to play in her little kitchen.

I have seen lots of felt food tutorials. Super cute ones.  But never came across felt ice cream so here it goes..


Pin It




Here is how I did it.
I started out with these shapes.


This prints as a 8.5 x 11
Supplies:
1 sheet of felt for each color of ice cream. Eache sheet makes 2 scoops. 
I chose dk. brown, white, pink and blue
2 sheets of Cream for the bananas, Each sheet make 2 finished bananas
 1 sheet of Brown for the cones makes 3 cones
8 ping pong balls
Needle & Thread
Glue gun
For my blue Ice cream I added some small buttons to look like bubble gum chunks.

I cut
8 bananas
2 of each color for ice cream and ice cream bottoms
2 ice cream cones and tops

Take a needle and thread. Stitch a basting stitch around the outside edge of the Ice cream circle about 3/4 of and inch from the edge.

Add your ping pong ball  to center and pull threads tight.  Tie threads off.
Take bottom circle and hot glue to bottom of Ice cream.
*Note: I tried to use stuffing for the insides but they didn't hold there shape well
and the ping pong ball helped it hold its shape.

 They should look like this when you are done.
 
Add a small square of velcro to the bottom of your ice cream scoops.

 For the cone I used the above pattern and glued the 2 edges together.  Leaving the top open.
Fill with stuffing.  Making sure you push a bit down to the bottom.I used the point of my scissors to get the stuff into the smallest part of the cone.  Fill cone full of stuffing to make it stiff.

Finish off cone by using a blanket stitch around the top to secure the cone top on.
I found that the over stuffed ones work best for stacking multiple ice cream on.  The velro sticks better.

For my Banana I stitched 2 bananas together leaving a small opening for stuffing.  Use a pen or blunt scissor ends to push a small amount for stuffing to each end of the banana.  Just enough to give the banana some dimension.  Stitch closed and trim edges.


for the cherries I used pom poms and pipe cleaner. 
I divided the pipe cleaner into 3rds.  Fold pipe cleaner in half and twist.
Find center of pom pom and dab hot glue into center.  stick pipe cleaner in and pinch to seal them together.

I found these little bottles at Joanns. They came in a set of 6.  I took 2 and added a little
paint to the inside to color the bottle.
 Everyone needs a little chocolate and caramel sauce. Right???
*For my banana split trays I used the stiffened felt and cut a rectangle.  I folded the ends and sides about an inch and glued them at the ends.
