Crafty Sassy: Top 5 Free Crochet Freeze Pop Cozies

Hey Dearies! Since it is summer time, the best thing to have on a hot day is ice cream! Well, if there isn’t any ice cream, freeze pops work as a amazing treat instead! Especially for the kiddos as well!

I remember picking the colors blue and pink, but now, I don’t mind having any of them! Although, the one thing that I wished I had was something to hold my freeze pop because sometimes they were too cold or sweaty.

Instead of having these cozies, we ended up using paper towels or wash clothes, which helped for a bit, but it didn’t do much, not to mention it wasn’t fun to have a plain old paper towel.

So, let’s look at some of the freeze pop cozies that I found that are not only cute, but the patterns are free for you to try!

Note: None of these patterns are mine, all rights go out to the original creators. I’ll be leaving links to the patterns for each one.


  1. Shark Fun Pop Cozy

This freeze pop cozy is something I’ve actually made and I love this pattern! It was very easy to understand and not to mention, I love how this shark looks! The eyes might the be most difficult to do, but if you have any black puffy paint around, you can use that instead!

2. Monster Ice Pop Holders

These lil monsters aren’t as scary as they seem, but they are so adorable! I also love the touch of using googly eyes! Not to mention, I love the bright colors that they used for these pop cozies and the finishing touches for the mouth is amazing!

3. Unicorn Freeze Pop Cozy

This one is especially cute for all the little ones that love unicorns! I haven’t made this one yet, but I just love how cute this is! Not to mention, this pattern actually uses puffy paint for the lashes. Plus, you can try out different colors for the horn and hair as well!

4. Light Saber Freeze Pop Holder

This one is for the inner child in us, or for those big Star Wars fans. I remember using a light saber, the plastic ones they sold that you could change the light different colors, but the next best thing was freeze pops! Even they are smaller than the normal light saber, I can finally change the colors!

5. Mermaid Fun Pop Holder

Another cozy that I made, and it was fun to make! Although I did add a different color yarn that was around the beginning of the tail. Not to mention, this is something that is very easy to make and explore with different colors and yarns!

There you have it! A few freeze pop cozies that are fun for all ages during these hot months of summer months!

Once we are able to do craft fairs again, these are something that are supper easy and quick to make and sell! Not to mention, how cute it would be to have these for the kids, too?

Also, what was your favorite treat to have during the summer months? If I’m honest, it was s’mores, but if we are talking about a cold treat, I would go with a mint-chocolate chip ice cream in a sugar cone.

Hey Dearies! Since this week is the week of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to find some more patterns for this lovely day! Even if you don’t celebrate it, hearts, like these can be the extra accessory to add to many projects!

Now, I looked around to find free patterns for these, but do keep in mind, I’m looking for different ways to crochet a heart. Like I said before, they can add the finishing touch to projects, such as hats, baby blankets, blankets, clothes, bags, and so much more! You can even make these to wear as jewelry!

Note: These are NOT my own patterns, I will be leaving links to these free patterns, but all rights go to the creators themselves.


  1. Crochet Simple Heart

Technically, this is a coaster pattern, but there doesn’t mean it has to be just a coaster, you can make this to be a wonderful add-on to a baby blanket or a hat. Not to mention, this is a little different from how a normal shape heart is crocheted.

5. Crochet Heart Applique

There we have it! There are many others that I found, but most of them were patterns that you had to pay for the pattern itself, which I only wanted to find the ones that were free.

Especailly, ones that were different or unique to create. Which ones are your favorites?

Crafty Sassy: 5 Easy To Do Beginner Projects For Crocheting

Looking at crocheting project, just looking at them makes you want to learn how to do it, if you are like me, you like to save the page you see them on and come back to it whenever you have time.

Some projects can be very tricky or confusing, so then you forget all about it and never look back until you see it again. This has happened to me so many times, that now that I know how to crochet, I try to go back and find them and see if I am ready to attempt them.

So, if you are truly wanted to enter into this fun and amazing hobby, sit back and check out these easy to do projects, if you are a beginner! Lets begin!

  1. Granny Square Blanket

20180724_070620.jpg

This is the current project that I am working on for my fiance. This is perfect for beginners! If you want to just make a simple blanket, this is perfect to do! Whenever I looked at a granny square blanket, I didn’t think I could make one.

If you don’t know, but I am a visual learner and need everything broken down step by step. YouTube was the first place I looked to find a video that would slow it down, and I finally found one, The Nervous Knitter.

She broke the granny square steps as slow as you can go, but it was easy to understand and learn. I always watch the videos first, before trying them, so I picked up on the steps very quickly. Once you learn how to do it once, it is like riding a bike, something you can’t forget.

If you want to check out her video, here is the link!

 

2. Scarf

Scarves will always be something that is easy to do. The only difficult thing about them is the patterns you choose. I didn’t understand why my grand-grandmother makes scarfs so much, but after realizing how quit they are to make, I understood why kept making them.

3. Bookmarks

You are probably thinking to yourself, bookmarks?? Yes, almost anything you can think of, you can crochet. Now, not all bookmarks are easy and I will be posting a how-to on how to do these ones.

These ones are as simple as granny squares, plus they are cute and pretty quick to make. Why have a plain boring paper or plastic bookmark when you can have a bright and colorful one instead!

4. Beanie Hat

Just like the scarves, this is another quick and easy thing to learn how to do. So, if you are a beginner and don’t have any gifts in mind for a birthday or Christmas, you can always crochet a hat and scarf.

I haven’t had a chance to learn how to crochet, but really can’t wait!

5. Granny Square Patchwork Blanket (Mini Granny Squares)

Image result for crochet granny square blanket

I know that I already have the giant granny square blanket on here, but here is the other version that your grandmother might have around her house. The difference between this blanket and the other one I mention is that this is just smaller squares you sew together.

While the other one is just a giant granny square, this one you can get creative and mess around with different colors and see what works and what doesn’t.
