Summer time and popsicles. They just go together like rama-lama-lama-ding-da-ding-da-dong. Remebered forever like shoo-wop-da-dippity-dip-da-dip. (Sorry, got lost on a musical rabbit trail there). Point being, popsicles are awesome. And to add to the “just go together” theme here, popsicle holders are perfect for keeping little hands from getting cold while holding their popsicles.
Last year my kids didn’t seem to have any problems with their popsicles, but for some reason this year they both started fussing about it being too cold on their hands. We’ve been wrapping the popsicle in a cloth napkin or something, but that gets difficult too because you have to keep it wrapped while trying to push up the popsicle. Blah, blah, blah. So, I decided to make a little sleeve to put the popsicle in and keep my kids hands from getting cold.
I grabbed some sheets of felt. And cut down the short side making strips 2.5″ wide and about 9″ tall.
Then I simply sewed around three sides of the popsicle holder making sure to back stitch at the beginning and end.
Trim any excess or uneven edges. Done!
Seriously, 5 minute project. It’s colorful, quite handy, and my kids LOVE it.
My 5 year old said “Thanks Mom. I really like these”
