Mum, what can I give my teacher this year?

I am shocked and appalled that I have been away so long – I had no idea how fast the days were going by.

I have spent a significant amount of time in the last 25 days attending school swimming galas, sports days, leavers assemblies, leavers parties, helping to decide what and supervising the making of┬áteacher and friends’ gifts with my children. I am SO glad its the holidays!

The summer teacher’s gift is always a practical item handmade by the children. I like to think that handmade gifts are appreciated and looked back fondly on…
This year both gifts had the same theme. Youngest daughter decorated a wooden pencil box

Oldest daughter made a pencil roll. I’d forgotten how easy the pencil rolls are to make – all straight lines on the sewing machine. Now I want one of my own.

Maybe when I make one for me I’ll do a tutorial too. Watch this space!
