So here are my teacher gifts I made. The room mom is putting together a basket with all things summer. So I decided to try to make my own Practical Bag. Again I was too cheap to buy the pattern so I figured it all out myself based on a picture.
I think they turned out pretty well. They look almost exactly like the Practical Bag although I think they are a little bigger. Which is okay with me because I was thinking they would be great pool bags or beach bags!
I ended up putting interfacing on the outside fabric of this bag and not the inside. I think it gives it just a little bit of shape without it being too much. And I think the coordinating lining is perfect. I hope they like them!
Now that these are done I have about 4 more to make for my son's teacher and all my daughter's elective teachers. It is her last year in preschool so I want to give everyone a present this year. We have been at this preschool for 4 years now and I will miss them all dearly next year.
I am 28 years old, married and mother of two wonderful kids. Michael is 8 and entering third grade, and Cadence is 5 and is about to enter kindergarten. :( I have recently gone back to the work force and am now trying to balance everything. I have recently opened a shop online to sell my baby quilts, loveys, toy bags, purses and more.
