G is now on her Christmas break, and the school sent the kids off on holidays in grand old style with a Christmas concert, potluck party and a visit from Santa!
I didn't make all of the teacher gifts, but three of five received a handmade touch. We got gift cards for the liquor store (no booze at the grocery store for us Canadians!) for her two main teachers, and I used Katie There and Back's delightfully simple tutorial to make gift card holders:
I didn't have any snaps, so I used some adhesive velcro circles I had on hand.
For the lunch supervisor, I made a Michelle Patterns Grocery Bag using some great canvas I acquired at Home Depot - it's a paint dropcloth I found on clearance!
I need to re-ink my ink pad - that label is brutal
The bag is lined with some regular quilting cotton and I used some co-ordinating fabric for the handles. I'll make that pattern again - it's very easy.
So those are my Friday Felicities - holiday break and handmade gifts. What about you?
