Handmade gifts for R’s teachers

June 27, 2011

cute wristlets made with whimisical fabric as a teacher's thankyou gift

R finished her first year of school this year (can’t believe it!).  And her teachers were amazing – so I wanted to make them something special as an end of the year thank you.

Thanks to Grosgrain’s month of free pattern giveaways, and Rae’s contribution of a Chevron wristlet tutorial, I made these cute little wristlets for all three of them!cute wristlets made with whimisical fabric as a teacher's thankyou gift with flower and ric rac embellishments

I used random t-shirt scraps and some ric rac to embellish the outsides, and I used a fun contrasting material to line the inside and make a nice sized pocket for credit cards or keys etc.

I also printed a 4×6 picture of R and mounted it on a cute stationary and wrote “thank you” on it with R’s help.   That gave the whole thing a nice personal touch!

I know it’s late for teacher’s gifts, but thought I’d share!

Check out grosgrain here and rae’s tutorial here!
