Crochet Popsicle Cozy

Crochet Popsicle Cozy
My daughter loves to eat a popsicle in the summer, but I always give her a towel to keep her fingers from freezing. So I thought it would be a great idea to make her a popsicle cozy! She was always complaining her fingers were cold when I gave her a cold popsicle. So I thought it would be a great idea to make her a popsicle cozy! She loved the idea and has been using the popsicle cozy ever since.


I moved my blog over to my new site, the pattern is here: http://crochetjewel.com/?p=1476
