Inspiration #7 – Ice Cream

Confession: I love ice cream. It’s actually one of my favourite desserts, and I’ve been seriously craving ice cream in this hot summer weather. When I found out that it was National Ice Cream Day on July 17th, I was so excited! I decided that I wanted to try making my own ice cream amigurumi to celebrate.

I’ve always believed that smaller things are cuter, so that’s partly why I made this pattern so small! The other reason is that I wanted to make this ice cream small enough to be a cell phone charm. I hope this charm will keep me satisfied, even when I don’t have any ice cream to eat! Plus, how can you go wrong with mint ice cream?
