Once the candy comes out of the pig where are the kids to put it? So I made cloth goodie bags big enough to hold a bottle of bubbles, a stencil and a pencil but also candy from the pinata.
I used my Cricut and a program called Sure Cuts Alot to cut Piggie & Elephant out of freezer paper.
I ironed the freezer paper on to the fabric and then applied paint.
After they had dried it was time to make them into bags. I took 2 rectangular pieces, one with the character and one blank and rolled under the sides so that the exposed edges were curled under.
Next I rolled down the top to the width of the ribbon I used as the drawstring and sewed across it. Leave the sides open for the ribbon.
Sew the 2 pieces together at the bottom, with the right sides together.
Next sew up the sides and flip the bag right sides out. Pull a ribbon through one way and knot. Take a second ribbon and pull through the opposite way and knot on the opposite side. Now when you pull both ribbons at once the bag pulls closed.
