Gifts for the teachers ...

I've finished the first two gift bags for the boys teachers! Two little bags made using the Blue Wrens Nest pattern from Cinderberry Stitches.

Tonight I'll make a start on a different one for Ayden's learning mentor, who has had the pleasure of Ayden's company :) for the last three years at Middle School.

There is a Dilbert on the go too as a gift for a child in Foster Care. At work we don't give gifts to each other, but give to gifts to be handed out to local kids in Foster Care.

I hope you are all enjoying some Christmas stitching!

What a lovely idea with the gifts for the children in foster care. I am sure your children's teachers will love the bags.

The bags are great! I'm sure that they'll love them. You've inspired me to wade through my spare room and find my sewing machine and do a little more sewing. I'm over packing and washing walls!!! I wish all my bloggy friends lived closer ... I'd offer coffee and cake as a treat if everyone would like to come pack a box with me!!!

Wow, lucky teachers! I bet they are all hoping to get your kids next year!!

I'm a teacher...and I certainly would love those gifts! REALLY like the idea of giving a gift for a foster child...we always do a gift exchange at work, that would be more meaningful.

The teachers are going to be thrilled with those!! Love the idea of giving to a foster child - the true meaning of Christmas.

You put me to shame ... I'm so behind with my Christmas 'making'. x

Loove the bags I'm sure the teachers will be very impressed. I haven't even thought about teachers presents yet. I guess I should get myself organised. What a lovely idea of giving a gift to a foster child rather than those you work with. That's the true meaning of Christmas.

They look sweet; I'm sure they will be well loved by their new owners.

Katy said...

blimey. Teacher's presents. I hadn't thought about them, mind you Miss G doesn't like her teacher this year (maybe I could get a present for last year's teacher, she was far nicer!)

Those bags are beautiful, and I'm sure they'll be treasured. As for Dilbert - well, you don't get better than a dino in your christmas stocking!!!

Look great! Nice colors too. Like what you do at your work for Christmas gifts.

What lovely gifts for the teachers - I am sure that they will be thrilled. One of ours is a male teacher who still lives at home with his mother! Not sure what to do there - not sure if homemade is the solution.

These are gorgeous bags! I've got a few special teachers to thank this year and have planned a bag but they won't have any stitching!! I usually buy a years supply of textbooks for a child in an underdeveloped country as well.

Oh, they're beautiful! I need to get going on my teacher gifts today ...

Rachael Rabbit said...

They are so sweet - if I was a teacher - such lovely gifts would make me weep a little!

Margaret said...

I hope your children's teachers get as mush enjoyment from the bags as we did seeing your lovely work
