Friday marks the last day of school and the official start of SUMMER VACATION!!! And yes, any discussion about SUMMER VACATION!!! must always be accompanied by dancing and shouting and extreme excitement.
Or is that just at my house?
Anyway, it's the end of the school year and time to squeeze in one last sewing project for Miss C.'s Kindergarten teacher: a zippy pouch.
We love Mrs. S. Not only did she teach our little Kindergartner how to read, write and do basic math, but she also helped her gain a better sense of how to be a good Christian Citizen. And, she's kind and patient with Master W. whenever we visit the classroom.
I chose fabrics very similar to the ones I used for her teacher's Christmas gift, knowing that she liked the color choices. This time, though, I didn't rely so heavily on Vintage Modern and took some tiny risks with color and pattern when selecting scraps to add to the mix. I was a little unsure of the pink at first, but I think it works well with the other colors.
I love making teacher gifts, and I can't wait to do it again next year. Do you make your children's teacher gifts? I'd love to hear your ideas!
