Summer Stitch Along

Hello, hello! Are you ready for the third installment of the Summer Stitch along? I am so excited to bring you another Free Crochet Pattern, from my ever expanding Sweet Stripes line!

Remember, I will be bringing you a NEW Sweet Stripes Pattern each week in June! The Sweet Stripes Freeze Pop Holders are the third of four designs!!

It was so much fun to design this Freeze Pop Holders Pattern! My pattern from last June, the FUN Freeze Pop Holders was such a hit I knew I wanted to make another one for y’all!! I hope you enjoy this one just as much!!! 🙂

 

Sweet Stripes Freeze Pop Holders

Free Crochet Pattern

I had so many people reach out to me following the release of my FUN Freeze Pop Holders saying they couldn’t wait to make them because they were going through so many paper towels for their kids ice pops and there kids would just leave them lying around the yard. Guess what y’all, that excact problem is why I made these designs in the first place! I love that we can create a quick, cute solution, that saves on waste and garbage too! Now that is a win-win in my book! 😊 

Not to mention, when you have a large family like mine, ice pops go fast and furious in the summer months, so a Freeze Pop Holder is essential!! My other favorite time for these is summer birthday parties because they are the perfect treat for a hot summer day! So with crochet Sweet Stripes Freeze Pop Holders to the rescue, we’ve got the popsicles covered! WHEW! 😅

Quick and Easy to make Freeze Pop Holders!

The Sweet Stripes Freeze Pop Holders are so quick to make! They take me less than 20 minutes each to make, including making and sewing the appliques!! They make great gifts, I like to give them in sets of 4 or 6, wrapped in a pretty ribbon! Make your gift even better by adding a pack of ice pops! Perfect for summer birthdays or to send a care package to family you are missing during this isolation period!! Don’t forget to make a set for yourself & your kiddos too!

Since they are so fast and easy to make, the Sweet Stripes Freeze Pop Holders are fantastic items to sell at your markets and craft shows too, especially those during the summer months! They are super lightweight so shipping them is an easy option this year too! It’s always good to stock up lots of quick and easy projects you can sell for a lower price point! Don’t crochet?
