I've been away from this little blog of mine for most of the winter and all of spring, but I'm back, and hoping to redeem myself with a two for one pattern.  I'll be teaching you how to make these adorable (sadly not edible) ice cream cone AND cupcake key chains.  If you don't have key chain hardware laying around, don't fret, you can find it by following this link.  or you can still follow the pattern along and make some adorable mini sweet treats.  

Tip:  If you are planning on doing any craft shows or fairs this Spring/Summer season, these are a great seller!

Using your darning needle, loop the yarn back through the MR.

Pull tight and securely weave in the end on the inside of the piece.

Attach the Ice Cream/Frosting to the cone or cupcake stuffing as you go.  Sew the piece together by bringing your needle from the inside out and under the stitch and pulling tight (photos below).  

Always come up from the inside of the stitch.  This will give you a nice and clean, hidden seam.  

Continue stuffing as you close the gap between the top and bottom pieces.  Weave in your ends, and enjoy!
