Today marks the end of a long love affair with making teacher gifts for Christmas and end of school year. I've been doing this for 17 years!
With Nicholas being a Sr. this year, he delivered the last Christmas gifts today to teachers. That's it for me unless university professors like gifts. *Ü*
He has 6 female teachers and one male this semester. I was thrilled when he came home with that schedule the first day of school because typically he has 5-6 male teachers and only 1-2 women. Purses are far more fun to make and give than male teacher gifts, although I love those too.
I used one of the purses in my Fashionable Favorites tutorial. I made them red for Christmas and hung the adorable moose on a ball keychain - but it can be removed and then the purse has no Christmas feel to it at all. The piece in the pocket is a tiny little card from Nicholas to each teacher.
