Teacher Gifts Round 1

Today my youngest “graduates” from 4K.  I can’t believe how fast it’s gone!  Seriously?!  Everyone tells you that time flies when they’re young but you don’t realize just how fast until it’s your youngest graduating from 4K!  Next year I’ll have three kids in school FULL TIME!  It’s going to be insane!  … and a bit lonely. 


But it is also incredible to see them grow and learn and discover new things.  Pip had some amazing 4K teachers to help her along this journey in life.  They did some super cute projects – one of my favorite is that at the beginning of the year the kids had to earn there “Scissors License”.  They actually got a slip of paper saying they were licensed to use a scissors … Pip is still proud of that to this day!

Of course … I needed to make some gifts for the teachers.

I started with Pip’s main teacher – Ms. T.  I made her a friendship pineapple block that is framed.  The pattern and kit come from Fabrications by Doris and I did my first live video on facebook showing off these fabulous kits.

Ms. Carol was next.  Ms. Carol has actually taught all three of my girls in 4K.  It’s fun to have the same teacher throughout the years and she did an amazing job!  For Ms. Carol’s mini quilt I used a BONUS block from The Splendid Sampler.  Lillyella designed these fabulous butterflies and you can make some too! I love how this little block looks all framed up!


And now … we’re off to the graduation ceremony!  I hope they like there gifts!
