Ridiculous that we are reaching the end of the school year already! What?!? Where did that school year go?!? My kids have had so much fun this year, I think they're both going to be sad they are on break. I have been investigating some stay-cation things for us to do, and I am getting a bit of a travel bug so maybe I can take their minds off things. I love that my kids love school so much!
In preparation for the end of the year, I have been working on some projects to give the teachers. I found a picture on pinterest, but the link wasn't working. That's fine, I usually prefer to 'wing it' anyway.
I made these cutie little bags out of some vintage large print fabric I had in my stash. It was supposed to be a backing but I didn't like how it looked with the quilt, so now I have 2 yards to work with.
I accidentally lined up the flower print on the front so nicely that I'm going to say I did it on purpose. I still have a couple to make and the pressure will be on to line them up so well.
I lined the bag with a navy fabric. I tried to match up some lighter colors so it was easier to see in the bag, but they were just washing into the floral print and I wanted more contrast.
The handles are mismatched on purpose. I promise. My husband didn't believe me. I made them so you can put items inside, like a lunch or snacks or books, and then weave one handle into the other so it closes a bit securing the items.
I still need to find some things to put into them, but this was the start. I got distracted by teacher appreciation week. Breakfasts at 2 different schools, and small somethings for the teachers for that, too. Meanwhile, I can sit back knowing I have a plan, I love how they turned out, and I am using fabric from my stash. Wins all around!
I'm linking up with Finish parties on Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Crazy Mom Quilts. Come check out the parties.
