Teacher Gift

This week is the last week of school for my boys so of course I choose this week to have a yard sale.  Way to much work goes in to yard sale but hopefully we will be able to clear some of the clutter away.  I did manage to whip up one tote for a teachers gift.   They are so quick to make and last ones received last year are still talked about this year to I guess that is a clear sign they are loved. 

I used Patty Young's Wildflowers in Navy from her ModKid Collection at Joann's.   I paired it with some small white dots on pink for the handles.   I lined the outside with batting and did some straight line quilting to hold the layers together. 


The inside of the bag I used a print I picked up a while ago at Joann's with letters, seemed fitting for a teacher.  The bag is reversible so she can use it either way.  

I hope tonight to be able to make binding and attach to my Craftys BOM 2012, then I will be able to stitch away as I am tending to the garage sale.  

The oldest son's teacher I was not sure what to make him but he mentioned to the kids that he spends a lot of time at Barnes and Nobles so I just picked up a gift card for him to get some summer reading. Easy peasy.  

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers, 

Abby
