Both Lucy's and Henry's teachers have birthdays this week. I wanted to do a little something for them, but it's hard to know what after only two weeks of school.
I ended up settling on book bags/reusable shopping bags. That's something everyone can use, right?
I like how this green and gray one turned out. I used a stiffer interfacing which made it stand up nicely. It is a pretty big bag, so with out the extra structure, it would be hard to find things that fall to the bottom.
The second bag turned out a little smaller/narrower, but the handles are thicker.
I lined it with a vintage inspired children's print.
I did a stack of appliqued books, inspired by Emily's 12 Squared pick. They are a little off center.
Oops and oh well!
Hopefully, these teachers will feel appreciated, even if they are only educating my children for three short weeks.
