Handmade Holidays

Somehow I seem to have lost a week or two between Thanksgiving and now. All those great holiday plans... go see Christmas lights, bake cookies, send cards... yep, none of that has happened so far this year.

I told Megan I would make a holiday gift for her teacher. Silly me thought Kindergarten = 1 teacher = 1 gift. Oh no! The grand total came in at 11 handmade gifts... Kinder, art, music, PE, computer, librarian, councilor, principal, and 3 ladies that run the afterschool program. But with a plan, a few late nights, and a lot of episodes of Chuck on Netflix, I got them all done.

Made productive use of a sick day home with Megan... #dividedbasket for teacher Christmas gift.

  Six more bags done! Only three more to go. Someone please remind me to start holiday sewing earlier next year! #handmadeholidays

First box pouch done! Now to assembly line 6 more (and come up with 3 more school gifts). #handmadeholidays
7 box pouches for all the 'specials' teachers

  After sewing 7 box pouches in 2 evenings I just couldn't make any more... so the after-school teachers are getting hippo coin pouches.  #handmadeholidays
And 3 hippo coin pouches for the afterschool ladies

Feels good to have these done! Now just a few more things to make and I'll be able to give my machine a little holiday break.
