Ice Cream Pint Cozy

Featured

I eat ice cream straight from the pint but I don't like how cold my fingers get. Wrapping my pint in a cloth napkin worked for a little while but I thought I deserved something better. Now you can sew a fabric sleeve for yourself. It'll keep your fingers from freezing off while you eat!

In this instructable you will design a pattern and sew one cozy. The pattern can be reused because pints of ice cream are pretty much standardized.

These instructions would also work for making a cozy for to-go coffee cups. Just use a cardboard coffee cup instead of a pint of ice cream to make the pattern. You can use your own fabric cozy and skip the cardboard sleeves at the coffee shop - save the trees!

I have not experienced that. It insulates the ice cream against the warmth of your hands as well as insulating your hands against the cold from the pint. Your hands stay warm and the ice cream stays cold.
