Scrap Buster – Ice Lollie covers


It’s hot weather seaon here and time for some yummy ice lollies but we seem to have misplaced the ice lollie covers that are suppose to be in the freezer, you know the one’s that are made out of wetsuit material kinda stuff.  You can usually pick up a 2 pack at the supermarket.

Well I couldn’t find any so what else is there to do but make your own and it’s a great way to use up your scrap material that you have lying around.  I happened to have some odd pieces of PUL (Polyurethane laminate or waterproof material) but you can just use 2 layers of cotton fabric or even felt as they are just to stop the kiddies fingers getting cold.

So first off cut out 2 pieces of fabric that measure 3.75 inches by 4.5 inches and with right sides of the fabric facing each other sew around 3 sides.

Now turn the fabric out the right way, fold in half so that the fabric you want to be on the outside is facing each other and pin like so:

I used a zigzag stitch to close sew the 2 sides together but you can also straight stitch or use an overlocker.  Turn right side out and there you have it.  Only takes under 5 mins to make.

I have my niece over at the moment for school holiday sleepover so I ended up making 4. 



Have you got any great ideas for using up your fabric scraps? Would love for you to share over at my Facebook page!

I am a stay at home mother of 2 beautiful girls and 1 handsome little man. I first started my blog as a place that I could share my love of sewing, anything crafty, cooking and working in my vegetable garden. I have always enjoyed making handmade gifts for family and friends and just before Christmas 2010 I started drafting designs for items that I wanted to make for myself for when my little man came into the world. With a little bit of convincing from my family and friends I decided to make and sell these items. You can follow me also on and on Facebooks, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter
