And somehow, amid all of this craziness, I am ahead of schedule for end-of-year teacher gifts. You read that right... two weeks of school left, and I have finished every last gift! (insert Snoopy dance here). I went easy this time around... everyone is getting the same thing, with the same fabric, and there are no zippers!
Megan's primary Kindergarten teacher will be getting a quilt. She's a first year teacher, and even with 21 kids in her class, she still found time to give Megan a little extra time and attention, so I wanted to give her something a little special. Everyone else... PE, Art, Computer, Music, Principal, Librarian, After-School Teachers... will be getting notebook covers.
I just love how these turned out! And they came together so fast! I cut my fabrics by the width of fabric, sewed the three fabrics together, lightly quilted some batting scraps to it (much better than running out to JoAnns for yards of fusible fleece!!), trimmed them down to size, and finished up the interiors. A few hours of work and I had 12 of these done!
I'm already plotting what next year's fast and fun gift will be.
