Frugal Friday- Sweet MTO gifts!

I have leftover muslin from the trimmings of Sweet Boy's comforter. I wanted to make sachets for the sweet MTO (Mom's Time Out) helpers. FYI...MTO is much like MOPS (Mother's of PreSchoolers)...I go twice a month when I am able! Very cool group that would be nothing without the free child care by super sweet ladies and a few older gentlemen! Our last meeting for this year is today!
Anyhew, cut out the circles (traced an empty cream cheese spread container)...ironed them flat...assembled smelly pellets in pomegranate. Phew...they stink (well, are strong)...I put them in a Ziploc and freeze them when not using them. Otherwise, I have headaches in my craft room!
My sweet girl assisted me with hand printing half the muslin. Awwww!
I rough stitched the edges using red floss...cuz I wanted it to look childish and cute! I put some stuffing and a tablespoon of pellets in each one.
I used a free printable for the baggie top from Living Locurto...she made cookies for her MOPS gals...Sorry, I wasn't feeling like baking...
AND...there ya have it...In the words of my Curious Georgette..."TA-DA!" I am posting this about the time they'll be getting them...I hope they think they're cute too!
