An easy to follow tutorial on how to make a freezie cozy to keep kid’s hand warm when they are enjoying their favorite cool treat.
Hot weather calls for freezie, am I right? There always times in a day that I kept hearing the word “Mom, can I please have a freezie?”. Does it sound familiars? Yes, that is what happens here lately, and I have to keep some of these treats available all the times. While I mostly make the homemade freezie, but once in a while I also like to keep the storebought one.

Considering these little hands keep holding the freezie, then I quickly sew the little piece freezie holder, so they can hold it comfortably. I called it freezie cozy actually, it is much more straightforward to say. I say it is a quick sew because it only takes five minutes to get one cozy ready, literally, just like making this felt envelope.

What You Need To Make Freezie Cozy
- Cotton flannel (I use 5 pcs of fat quarters because they come in a different pattern in one bundle)
- Washable Fabric Marker
- Pin (you might need it)
How To Make Freezie Cozy
- Measure the fabric by using ruler and fabric marker, mark it for 22-inch x 3- inch, it will resemble a rectangular piece.
- Cut the marked fabric, if you make more than one cozy, then cut some more rectangular pieces.
- On the wrong side of the fabric, fold it in half, take about 1/4 inch seam allowances, then sew along the edge leaving about 2 inches for the opening.
- Turn the fabric inside out through the opening.
- Now, you have the right side of the fabric, fold it in half again, and sew along both sides by the length. The opening will automatically shut when you sew the edge.
- There you have it, your freezie cozy is done. Repeat the process if you make more of it.
As you guess, my little one was so excited as soon as I give her this cozy. Her small hand won’t get cold anymore when she is enjoying her cool treat.
I use the cotton flannel for this simple project because it is thicker than regular cotton, and I don’t need batting inside. You could also use fleece for the project.
Yes, I can use a paper towel to hold the freezie, but then it will go to garbage bin when it’s done. The best thing with this cozy, you can reuse it over and over again and completely washable also customizable with your color or pattern preference. For the best experience, you can ask the kiddos to pick their favorite pattern and help them to sew it, talk about a summer project on the weekend. If you have some old fleece sheet or flannel receiving blankets, these are perfect for this project.
Here are more of sewing projects from fat quarter.
From a fat quarter piece, you can make about six pieces of cozies. So, from a bundle you can make up to 30 pieces of cozies, that will make a fun DIY birthday party favor.
