Teacher gifts this year

In all the holiday busy-ness, I never shared my teacher gifts. I had 16 teachers to make for this year because of my little guy being in a toddler room and my older one in two schools (blasted part time kindergarten!). So for the majority of teachers, they got these little Mini Treat Totes. I've linked to the free pattern for you.
These went together so fast! I did most of them during our Philly MQG retreat in November. And i used a lot of my adorable Kawaii fabric from the Pink Castle Kawaii Fabric club. Here's a close up of one of my favorite pieces.

I got a great groupon for the Body Shop and got body butters to put in these bags for the teachers.

I decided that my daughter's kindergarten teacher needed a bigger gift. She has 25 kids in her class but still really takes the time with each kid. So I made her the Jane Market Tote from the pattern I bought a few years ago.

 These are such a great bag. Good all purpose size and quick to go together!

The pattern doesn't call for it, but I use stabilizer in it so they are a little stiffer and will maintain shape a little better. Helps when you are trying to load it.

I also made some key fobs for the bus drivers, but forgot to take pictures of those. I hope they are happy with them!

These are beautiful. I may steal this idea for next year! LOL. I had better start now though because it takes me forever to get a project done. I'm still new and it shows. LOL. Plus this gives me an excuse to go shop some end of year clearance sales on fabrics. I don't really have a "stash" yet but this is a great idea! Thank you!
