Up today we have the finished kindergarten teachers' gifts.
Drawings done by the girls, scanned, reversed, printed onto iron-on paper,ironed onto white fabric, cut and sewn into little zippered purses.
I sized them to use Nikki's Make-up Purse pattern - but forgot to factor in the cute boxed corners, which of course would then have 'eaten' into the design.
So I used the same size but just did regular straight sides, not as nice as the boxed result you get using the pattern, but the teachers didn't seem to mind.
These are the lining fabric - not sure why one looks much larger as they really were the same size!
Then I used patterns from the very cute Fa la la la Felt book that was released just before Christmas last year.
I had to get it as soon as I had seen Cathy Gaubert's mushroom pattern - seriously, how cute are these guys.
I didn't take a pic of the back, but on it I embriodered each child's name and the year.
So by the time all my three kids finish kindergarten the teachers will each have six handmade decorations to remember them by.
