Assembly:

  1. Sew the top scoop to the bottom scoop. I sewed mine at a slight angle but you can sew them however you like. Make sure you stuff the top scoop before you sew.
  2. Use your sewing pins to place the chocolate syrup on top of the top scoop. Keep the pins in as you sew to help you keep the placement you like.
  3. Stuff the cone before sewing it to the top of your ice cream stack. I sewed mine at an angle but sew it however you like.
  4. Embroider the face on your bottom ice cream scoop. I chose a kind of miserable facial expression but get creative with it.
