Today I am sharing a super quick sewing project.  Each cone will take about 5 minutes. The sew-in soft is great for giving the cones a little bit of structure.  They will hold their shape and the contents inside.

Materials Needed:

8″ X 8″ fabric- one for outside, one for the lining

8″ X 8″ StitchnSew™ Woven Sew-in Soft Interfacing

ric rac or ribbon 17″ long

Valentine Candy stuffed Cone Tutorial:

1) Layer the outside, StitchnSew™ Interfacing, and lining together- wrong sides will be facing the interfacing

2)  Mark on two sides 4″ from the corner

3)  Slip the end of the ric rac and pin in place where the mark is– repeat for the other side

7)  Sew along this edge

8)  Turn right sides out and push the point out

9)  Stuff with candy, love notes or whatever!

Sew a few up for each holiday– who doesn’t love a little bit of candy during the year?!

If you’d like– you can embellish them like these hearts, add some buttons, yo yo’s, ruffles… explore a bit.  Because these aren’t washed it would be fun to add paper to the mix as well.
