Teacher Gifts

This would be a first for me, being that I won't be sewing late into the night the night before the last day of school!  I'm kind of a procrastinator...
Last year I gave potted flowers as teacher gifts.  I really liked the idea, but wanted to do something different this year.  I chose to make quilted fabric sleeves and will present them on these coffee cups (from the dollar store), and inside I will put a $5 Starbucks/Tim Hortons card.  It was kind of fun to make them, but next time I might use a pattern with instructions to save me from fiddling about so much.  Although I don't really know if I will ever be making more than one more...


I got to try out my new free-motion quilting foot, so that was kind of fun.  The one I have doesn't exactly fit my machine, but it seems to work out OK.  I can see it's one of those things you really need to just jump in and practice, practice, practice.
Enjoy your day!
