Teachers' Gifts Sorted!

My kids’ Primary School teachers always get a handbag from me at the end of the school year (except the year when one of my daughters had a male teacher – before ‘man bags’ were cool!).
I’ve only one daughter left in P.S so I could spend a little more time & thought on her wonderful teacher.
I recently saw a tutorial for a cute summer tote bag on Grosgrain.
And here is my version of it:

I added a handy pocket for the wee stuff that always gets lost at the bottom!
This pattern follows the standard rules of bag-making (pocket & snap fastener instructions not included) and was very easy to make.
My daughter loves it and is confident her teacher will love it too!  Phew!
The same daughter has 2 classroom assistants in her class who she doesn’t like to leave out.  So they (plus my other daughter’s favoured form teacher) are getting mug rugs which I had made a few months back.

All that’s needed now are a few yummy biscuits or sweets to go with them and we’re sorted!

I’m going great guns with my lounge cushions (once I finally bought the right size cushion fillers – duh!).  Will wait until I’ve all 6 made before the grand unveiling!!

Here endeth another productive day!
