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 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.
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!
