Teacher’s Gifts

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.

Kristi,
I LOVE the frames!!! I'm so glad the tutorial helped. If I got one of those as a present, I'd be over the moon!
