Teacher gifts

The end of the school year is upon us and I can't believe that my little girl will be a second grader soon! Where oh where has the time gone........

This year I decided that I needed to get crafty and make the teachers some cute little gifts instead of buying the same old-same old. Here is what I came up with:

To start off I found some adorable little apple ribbon and made each teacher a key chain. I figured they could either use it for their keys or put the hall pass on it for the kids at school to use.

Then I came across this perfect apple fabric and made each one a tissue holder for their purses. Love these and have already made more for future gifts!

I found this tutorial online for coffe/tea cozy's at one of my favorite blogs, House on Hill Road, and decided they were the perfect addition to the teacher's gifts. Easy peasy and so fun to make!

Last but not least I took some fabric remnants and whipped up these seriously cute magnets. I'm addicted and have made TONS more for some ladies at work who requested them.

So there you have it, I hope the teachers enjoy them!


  1. WOW! what great ideas! you make sewing look so easy. Your doing a fabulous job!!!

  2. love them! bet the teachers were glad to get them!
    what do you use for the keychains?

  3. Stuffie....for the keychains I use key fob ends that I bought online. J Caroline I *think*, but I'm not 100% positive.
