Ice Cream Cone Cozies
This great summer sewing project comes to us from Leigh Ann Tennant of The Object Project. Using a CD case for the pattern, this simple sewing project is an easy way to use up fabric scraps.
Summer brings long days, picnics, and sticky little hands! Skip the drip with these fun little, washable Ice Cream Cone Cozies!
- Cotton and terry cloth scraps
- needle and thread
- rotary cutter and mat or scissors
- buttons or embroidery floss to embellish if desired.
- You’ll be using a CD case as your pattern!
- Using the CD case as a template, cut one square from the cotton and one square from the terry cloth. If you don’t want to cut around the CD case with the rotary cutter, you can trace the CD case onto the fabric and then use scissors to cut it out.
- Place the squares right sides together and pin.
- Using a 3/8” seam, sew around the square. Stop sewing about an inch from where you started, leaving a space. Trim the corners diagonally.
- Reach inside the space you’ve created and turn the cozy right-side-out and press.
- Using a ¼” seam, topstitch around the square, closing the turning space. This is the point at which you can embellish with buttons or embroidery.
- Bring 2 sides of the square together, forming a triangle. A CD isn’t a perfect square, so it will not form a perfect triangle, and this is fine. Stitch through the layers of terry cloth in the seam, from the point of the triangle to about 3 inches up the side.
- Insert an ice cream cone and enjoy! You can fold down the points of the triangle as you eat the cone!

I wish I saw this a lot sooner but there is still some warm weather yet. These ice cream cozies are a great idea and so simple that I am going to make a lot of them using wash clothes or a towel instead of trying to find fabric. I am constantly washing my hands because the ice cream melts between my fingers and kids keep wiping theirs on clothes. Will save a lot of heartache by using something to catch the ice cream as it is melting. Love it anyone else?

Could you use a couple of washcloths instead of doing all the cutting? Has anyone done that? Then you could wet the washclothcone holder and wash the little ones face and hands. Just curious.

Where was this item when my little ones were little and ice cream was dripping on the cloth seats in my car?

Better yet, instead of tracing around the CD case, measure the length, width and height and cut pieces appropriate size using those measurements. Its not rocket science and it could be done in a heart beat. Finished edges could be run through a serger for faster assembly with wrong sides together and no turning required!! Just another thought.

It's not a CD, but a CD cover.

What a terrific, creative and easy way to provide an inexpensive surprise gift to your grand kids, neighborhood kids, family and friends.....you could make them in all sizes if you are into the large cones! A loop could be added so that they could be kept somewhere in the car for handy use while out and about! There are any number of ways of decorating them too which would be great for a project for kids in groups aimed at their age level and ability. Never have thought of it but glad I found it!
