Teacher Gifts

can be a tough one.
i thought i'd share a couple with you that i have done more recently...

this is 2 flower blocks from cheri's 'plaid flowers' pattern.
i adapted it to fit into a 11 x 14 frame
i had a friend make me a saying with her vinyl lettering machine
that could read
"if teachers were flowers, i'd pick you"

this was a hit.
i had the little princess draw a picture for her teacher and then i stitched it and made this pillow.

hope this helps...

Julie, those are so cute! I'm sure the teachers will love those. I'm going to have to figure out where I can use your vinyl lettering idea.

Those are so-o-o cute, clever, and adorable! I only wish I had thought of them 10 years ago! My son is 22 years old, but, they will be great for any future grandchildren's teachers, especially if both of their parents have to work. I really do enjoy your blog!

Regards,
Pam
