presents for teachers

I finished the presents
for my kids' teachers,
just on time for the end of appreciation week.

As the daughter of a first grade teacher,
I know teachers like presents that are edible
(especially if they are married or have children!).
That said how about a cute bucket to put the chocolate?


I made 2 more buckets using this tutorial
from Ric-Rac.
I had made some last year
here and here,
they are fun and easy to make.


This time I used a quilting cotton
(left-over from my favorite jacket)
and drop cloth.
Probably unusual, but not buying fabric,
remember?!



I like them so much
that I think I will make some for myself,
to use in my new sewing room....
still a work in progress!

Happy sewing!

  1. I think that's the same fabric my mom just used to make me some napkins. I've been wanting to switch over from paper napkins for a while, but it took help from mom to finally make it happen. :)
