A little late…

7 Aug

We’re into the second week of the school holidays now so way past time for sharing the things I made for teacher gifts.

Three years ago Bethan and I made this for Mrs Brand:

Leah has had her as a teaching assistant this year and she is still using it as a pencil case. Funnily enough it is looking a little worse for wear so we thought we would make another one:




It’s completely different, a boxy pouch (based on this tutorial) all based around the daffodil fabric that I received from Catrin in a swap, Mrs Brand is Welsh so we knew that she would appreciate the daffodils.


Something inspired me to make a rainbow pouch and as soon as Leah saw it she decided it would be for her teacher.

Bethan has had the same teacher for 2 years, she has been great, allowing Bethan to run origami sessions during Golden Time, so what better fabric to use that some from the Mixed Bag range by Moda along with a some of a mini charm pack of Simply Style by V and Co and other coordinating scraps:




For a teacher that Leah has one day a week and another teaching assistant I made these:


They are similar to the boxy pouch but on a smaller scale! I used this great tutorial, they finish up at 3.5″ long.

For Mathias’ preschool I made superhero capes and I also made each teacher a key fob.  I gifted a bag of them and told them to squabble over  decide amongst themselves who had which one.


So that’s it on teacher gifts for another year!

  1. Thanks for trying out one of my patterns, for the Teeny Tiny Zipper Pouch, and linking back. They look great! I’ve pinned it to my Your Sewing Creations board on Pinterest and hope you’ll get a few visitors as a result. Deby at So Sew Easy

  2. Haha, I saw the daffodil fabric and thought, Oh, I’ve got some of that fabric! Then I remembered that I’d put it in your swap package because you said one that you had Welsh heritage! Love seeing some of my scraps popping up in your projects – I should send you more – at least they’d get used that way.
