Anywho... the end of the year means teacher gifts!! I wanted to make their teachers something really special this time since it was Penelope's last year. Their preschool is AMAZING and I just wanted to let them know how much we love having them in the girl's lives. I made each teacher a patchwork pillow.
I used a charm pack to make each pillow front. I chose 36 squares and then cut them down to 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares. That made 6 rows of 6 squares.
I made envelope closures on the back and bound them just like a quilt. Each cover holds an 18" x 18" pillow form. I was happy with how they turned out and the teachers really seemed to love them. :)
Now that we have been at that school for 2 years I am running out of ideas on what to make for the teachers. Adelaide will be there for another 2 years! Help!!! What do you guys make for gifts? Keep in mind that I will have to make 4! I have a feeling I won't be making each teacher a king sized quilt! :)
