Play Food ~ Free Felt Food Ice Cream Sandwich Pattern!

If you have been following my blog...you will have read & seen a lot of the free felt food patterns that I have been designing and making for my little grand daughters pretend play kitchen that she has. Well...today I am posting yet another FREE felt food pattern for you to enjoy.

Below you will find my instructions on how I made an Ice Cream Sandwich for her kitchen play set using craft felt. I did mine completely with hand sewn stitches but you can machine sew it together too.

Play Food ~ Felt Ice Cream Sandwich Pattern

Chocolate Brown and White Craft or Wool Felt
Chocolate Brown and White Embroidery Floss or Sewing Thread
Small Amount of Fiberfill Stuffing
Scissors & Sewing Needle

Pattern: 2 1/4" by 4 1/2" paper pattern + 1" by 13 1/2" paper pattern

Directions: From chocolate brown felt, cut 4 pieces that measure 2 1/4" by 4 1/2" in size. From chocolate brown felt, cut 1 piece that measures 1" by 13 1/2" in size, from white felt cut 1 piece that measures 3/4" by 13 1/2" in size (the white strip needs to be slightly smaller in it's width than your chocolate strip).

Place 2 chocolate brown rectangles together and using 3 strands of brown embroidery floss, hold those 2 pieces together and make random french knots on them to simulate the indents of a real chocolate wafer. You will then repeat this with the other 2 rectangles. Your next step is to use 2 stands of chocolate brown embroidery floss and blanket stitch the 1" by 13 1/2" chocolate brown strip around one of the rectangles. Once completed (attached) blanket stitch it to the other chocolate rectangle. Before closing it up to resemble a brick, insert some polyfiber fill but don't over-fill it or it will get too puffy. Finish up. At this point, it should look like a chocolate brick. Your next step is to attach the white strip around the sides of the chocolate brick to resemble the vanilla ice cream. You can blanket stitch it on using 2 strands of embroidery floss or just make simple tiny hand sewn stitches to attach it. If in a hurry, you can glue it on with some craft glue.

You have now completed your felt ice cream sandwich. The size I made is an ACTUAL size of a real ice cream sandwich but if you want to make a smaller one to fit toddler hands, just shorten the measurements on the paper pattern.
