I'm glad you all liked the idea. Happy to share. Grin

Just wanted to post an update...The cut-out's started to peel off the shirts before we even left the house. So I ended up have to sew them to the shirts. Darn it! Does anyone recommend a product that will stick really well?

Thanks. We really had fun making these Smiley.

Made these today with the kids. Very simple and no sewing involved. We used Heat n Bond Ultra. It was my first time using this brand and I really liked it. I got the idea from this blog:

For the bag, I cut the towel in half and did a roll hem at the top edge. Then I sewed the 2 long sides together with a french seam and sewed in the white ribbon that the bag is tied with in the seam. Then I hand sewed (because of the pom-pom's) the bottom straight across. It took me longer to figure out how I wanted to do it than anything!

Thanks for the kind words. To make the dough, just mix equal parts of applesauce and cinnamon. I gave each child a 4 oz tub of applesauce and a heaping 1/2 cup of cinnamon. Just mix well.  If dough is too moist add a little cinnamon and if too dry add a little more applesauce. Start mixing w/a spoon then use your hands. Roll 1/4" thick and cut w/cookie cutter. Use a straw to make the hole for hanging. Let dry for 3-4 days or you can dry in oven at low temp.

I went to the Dollar Tree yesterday to get cinnamon to make applesauce cinnamon ornaments with the kids yesterday. When I was there I saw some cute Christmas tea towels. I thought they would make cute little bags to hold the ornament supplies. And also be a nice little inexpensive gifts for friends/family with children that would enjoy making the ornaments together. I used the individual applesauce cups (so the applesauce wouldn't need to be measured) a cookie cuuter and the dough recipe. Also pictured are the ornaments we made last night.

Thanks guys. I didn't use a tutorial, just looked at a few different examples that people had posted. They are very simple. If it's not simple, I can't do it! But I'm sure there are fancy smancy versions out there Wink. Whoever came up with the idea was a genius; it really has helped with the thread mess.

I am a new sewer. I bought myself an inexpensive machine last year and really enjoy playing around with it. I saw a pic someone had posted of a thread catcher. I had never seen one before, but my dining room where I sew had little bits of thread all over the floor and table. What a wonderful idea Grin. So I made one w/some scrap fabric I had on hand. And then I saw pattern weights and made some of those too and I figured I should have a matching wrist pin cushion, so I recovered it w/the owl fabric too!
