Hello! It’s Laura and Tia from Little Button Diaries. With the summer in full swing, we wanted to make a little purse to keep our ice cream change in, and to remind us of those summer nights when the sun has long gone.

How to Make

Step One

Begin by drawing an ice cream template (as above). Next, you need to cut out your fabrics. You will need to cut two pieces of the whole template for the lining, two pieces of the triangular part for the ice cream cone and two pieces of the scoop part for your ice cream. When cutting out the shapes, allow for a 1 cm seam allowance.

Step Two

Pin the cone to the scoop, right sides together, and sew along the flat edge. Press flat with an iron. Now pin these two pieces together and sew along the sides of the cone, leaving the scoop open. Repeat this step with the lining fabrics, leaving a 2 cm gap along one of the edges to enable you to turn the purse out later.

Step Three

Using stab stitch, embroider the stitches to resemble 100s and 1000s onto the ice cream scoop fabric.

Step Four

In light pencil or tailor’s chalk, draw around the purse clasp onto the top of the fabric to act as a guideline to sew around and to ensure it is the right size.

Step Five

To attach the lining to the outer fabric, open them up (they should both be inside out) so that they are facing with right sides together. Pin all the way around the scoop, and sew.

Step Six

Make tiny snips along the curves, so that when the purse is turned out it will not pucker.

Step Seven

Turn the purse the right way out, tucking the lining into the purse. Push the ice cream point out. Sew up the hole in the lining using a slip stitch. Press flat.

Step Eight

To attach the purse to the clasp, use thread (embroidery or cotton thread). Push each side up into the clasp and use backstitch to attach it. Hide the knot in the inside of the purse.

Little Button Diaries is the crafting and baking blog from two Brighton-based friends. We are Laura and Tia, and we share a love for all things creative. In the last couple of years we have both given birth to little girls – Harper and Amelie – and we wanted to start a blog to document all the things we get up to together. We’re very lucky that we only live round the corner from one another and have, well, pretty much everything in common. If we’re not chatting away about our blog we love to find new things to bake, projects to make and photographs to take. It’s not easy finding the time to make stuff with little ones running around your feet, but we want to show that having a baby doesn’t mean you have to stop doing the things you love, and that a lot can be achieved even in the space of a short nap! We’re not saying we are craft wizards, more ‘find a fault, make a feature’ kinda girls. We’re just doing the things we love because we love doing them and hope you will too!
