List of supplies
Cricut Maker or scissors
EasyPress2 or iron
Let Start The Popsicle Sleeve
Cut your fabric and batting using the Maker or scissors. The pattern is a 4 1/2” square. I cut mine with my rotary cutter and a ruler. For the batting , I used a 4 1/4” square just so my seams aren’t as bulky.
There are two ways to sew the popsicles holder. If you have pinking shears, simply sandwich the batting between the fabric, right sides out, and stitch together using a generous 1/4” seam. Pink around the edges being careful not to snip the stitching.
Velcro Holds the Sleeves in Place
Wrap it around a popsicle and determine where to place the Velcro. After using them for a while I found that it is best to stitch a line back and forth on all the dots to keep them in place.
The second way to sewing the popsicle wrapper is is to place the fabric right sides together then place that on top of the batting.
Stitch around leaving a gap to turn the popsicle wrapper right side out. Be careful not to push your turner through the corner like this therefore leaving a small hole.
Don’t forget to clip the corners so it not all bunched up at the corners.
Poke the corners and sew the closing together. I use the sewing machine and stitch all the way around the holder so it keeps its shape better.
Place the Velcro the same as above.
Personalize With Cricut
I put my grandsons names on mine, but you can put anything you want on them. The size space I used is 1 x 3 1/4”.
Using my Cricut Maker and some HTV vinyl, I cut their names out. Weed then using either an EasyPress2 or a hot iron, transfer your design. Always remember to mirror you htv vinyl.
Another hard learned tip, cover the Velcro circles with some other fabric to prevent them from melting. Pressing them on helps them adhere to the fabric better. So just remember to cover them!
Finished Popsicle Sleeves
So there you go! How easy was that?! Now your guests little, or big, fingers will not freeze while enjoying that delicious popsicle. They are bound to be delighted with their own personalized popsicle sleeve.
