These lollipop cozies are a fun project for little kids just learning how to sew, but you can also use glue to make this sweet topper.
What you'll need:
- 6" x 4" piece of Valentine themed fabric
- 3 stick pins
- White thread
How to make it:
- Print pattern. Fold the piece of paper the pattern is printed on at the fold line indicated on the pattern. Cut pattern out so when the paper is opened, it is in the shape of a heart.
- Fold fabric over so that it is two-ply thick. Place pattern onto fabric and pin in place. (See photo.)
- Cut around pattern then remove pins and pattern. (See photo.)
- Place the lollipop on top of the fabric you just cut out. You will need to make sure that the bottom opening is large enough for the head of the lollipop to fit through. Trim the open of the fabric as needed.
- Use a simple stitch (such as a blanket stitch) to sew the two pieces of fabric together. (See photo.) Be sure to leave the bottom open to slide the lollipop into. Tie off the ending stitch and slide the lollipop inside!
- If you prefer, use hot glue or fabric glue instead of sewing.
- You can use felt instead of fabric, just be sure you have a sturdy needle.
- If you like, add two strands of ribbon to the left and right side of the cozy opening, then tie them together after the lollipop is inside.
