Teacher Gifts


Posted on December 21st, by Amy in finished project. 15 comments

I left these to the last minute, BUT I sent these pouches to school with the girls today!  It’s their last day of school “for the year” as Ella likes to point out. 

Teacher gifts, with Christmas cookies inside.

I had the girls help pick out fabrics for their teacher yesterday, and spent the evening paper piecing 6″ blocks.

The girls helped pick fabrics

 I then just added a bit more fabric to 9 1/2″, and added fusible fleece for a bit of body.  I like the structure it gives zip bags, without stiffness.

Paper pieced

Each pouch has a baggie inside with a dozen cookies inside, a good sampling of what we made, without being to much!

Cheery and fun

I had fun making these, and love how individual they are, hopefully the teachers find a good way to put their pouch to use!

Blessings to you today ~ Amy

    Love, love these! Lucky teachers! I’m impressed you got so many done in such short time. This would have taken at least 3 months for me to finish, ahem…
