Freezies are such a favourite treat in our house during the summer months! But they are so cold for my children’s little fingers – the solution? A simple freezie cover!
These covers are simple and quick to make up! I’ve made them using %100 cotton to help protect against the cold. They are machine washable and dryable. Make a bunch at the start of the summer, throw them in your bag as you head out to the park!
They are great for schools and daycares, a quick and easy seller at summer craft fairs and sales.
These sleeves are open at the bottom which makes them great for both the smaller freezies and larger ones. My kids also love to use them with frozen yogurt tubes.
The pattern will be found below along with a free video tutorial, however if you would like to save it to your library or purchase a convenient PDF download, you may do so through my Ravelry and Etsy shops:
