Learn how to make a ice cream pint cozy with a free sewing pattern. Keep ice cream cold and hands warm while you enjoy a summer treat.
Ice cream is one of my favorites treats. Every once in awhile we go as a family and each pick out our own ice cream pint. My kids loving having their own little ice cream.
Eating our ice cream at the table my kids are laughing and talking while I’m watching their ice cream melt. Pretty soon someone is complaining about cold hands and the melted ice cream drips are smearing everywhere.
Luckily, I’m sharing a free ice cream pint cozy sewing pattern that sits around the ice cream pint. It keeps the ice cream cold, keeps hands warm, and it catches any melty drips!
What fabric works best for a ice cream cozy?
I like to use quilting cotton fabric for a strong but soft fabric cozy. This cozy definitely needs medium weight interfacing and fusible fleece the give the cozy insulation, stability, and shape.
What is a PDF sewing pattern?
A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern designed on the computer and organized so that it can be printed on several letter or A4 size pieces of paper.
I love using PDF sewing patterns because if the pattern gets ruined or if my children or I changed sizes, I can always print it again. It’ll never be destroyed since I have a digital version!
How do you use a PDF sewing pattern?
Open the PDF on a computer and click print. When printing make sure that the scaling is set to 100% or no scaling so that the pattern prints at the correct size.
Once the pattern is printed it can be taped together to get the full size. Then the pattern can be cut for each pattern piece size or individual sizes can be traced so that the pattern can be used again and again.

Use the pattern pieces to cut out one outer piece, one lining piece, and one strap piece. From the interfacing cut out one lining piece and one strap piece. From the fusible fleece cut out one outer piece.
Apply the interfacing pieces to the back of the lining piece and the strap piece. Apply the fusible fleece to the outer piece.
Fold the strap in half matching the long sides and the wrong sides together. Press the fold in place. Fold the long edges in to meet at the fold. Press those folds in place. Fold all three folds so that the long edges are enclosed inside, like bias binding, and press.
With everything folded sew along each side 1/8 inch from the edge. This is the strap.
You will create the outer cozy and the lining the same way. Fold the corners so the the cut out edges match up right sides together.
Sew the sides together and backstitch when you start and when you stop. Do this to all four sides of each pattern piece.
Clip the seam allowance open at the bottom of each seam. Press all eight seams open.
Place the lining inside the outer cozy with right sides together. Match all the corner seams and keep the seam allowances open. Sew around the top of the cozy leaving a 3 inch hole open.
Turn the cozy right side out through the hole. Press the top edge flat with the lining rolled inside. Make sure the hole is pinched closed when you press.
Sew around the top edge of the cozy 1/8 inch from the edge.
Fold the edges of the strap over 1/2 inch. Pin it onto the side of the cozy. Sew a rectangle over each strap end to secure.
Add your ice cream pint. You finished!
