Popsicle Cosies

Type Popsicle Cosie into your google search and see what pops up. HILARIOUS and somewhat disturbing.... Anywho, I saw this idea last year, and I can't remember where, hence the google search. I thought about making them, but just never got around to it. My 3-year-old loves Popsicles, but doesn't like to hold them, so she wraps wash clothes around them. The other day, I was watching her and remembered these!
So easy and my kids are in love with them. Every time they have a Popsicle, they have to run and grab a cosie now. Even my older kids! I love it. I took pictures to post a tutorial, but they are the simplest things ever to make.

1. Cut yourself a piece of 3x4 felt. The 3 being your height and the 4 your width.

2. Fold the felt in half, so that you have a 2 inch piece of felt. Sew a stitch down the side. I did a fun zig zag stitch. I used the edge of the zipper foot as my guide. Trim it up and you've got a Popsicle cosie that will fit an otter-pop!

That's it! So easy and so cute! We have a huge stockpile in different colors, because we are the neighborhood party house.
