Firstly, print and cut out the ice cream cone template, separating the ice cream from the cone.

Use the brown thread to make waffle cone lines on the tan felt. Start by marking the lines on the wrong side of the cone with a marker and then sewing lines, following the dotted pattern.

Make coloured sprinkles in the white felt by sewing small double lines in random places all over the ice cream dome.

Trace and cut out each piece of felt from the iron-on bonding paper.

Follow the directions of the bonding paper. Usually, the first step is to iron the clear, ‘bumpy’ side of the bonding to the wrong side (the side without the embroidery) of the felt. Hold an iron (do not use steam) over the felt and press and hold until the bond has taken.

Then peel the paper backing off and lay it onto the apron. Press with the iron until bonded. Try not to rub the iron back forth too much.
