This year, my children’s teachers are each getting an apron.
First, my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher is getting this red snowflake number…
(I actually used a pattern that I drew myself using a ruler and a some free hand onto craft paper! Not too shabby, eh?)
And my son’s preschool teacher who LOVES brown, is getting this one…
I will be making at least one other apron before Christmas, but probably two. One is a custom order from a real life friend, the other is hopefully a half apron from the fabric I had left over from the snowflake fabric. Business has been really good both in the store and also custom orders from friends and real life clients. So I have been keeping really busy.
I also embellished some frames for each of the three teachers at the Montessori school where my kids go. I LOVE this craft and have made about 11 of these frames so far. This idea is from Jessica of Brixton Lane. She has a wonderful tutorial so you could try it yourself!
A little gift to myself arrived this week. A custom design camera bag from Wicked Stitch Designs. It’s so cute I could almost eat it.
And… yesterday our first Christmas card arrived while today our first snowflakes arrived. My has 2009 flown by!
