i love my kids' teachers. i have worked in both classrooms and i tell you there isnt enough money in the world to get me to be a teacher.
and there is no way i could ever thank them enough for all they do.
but here is my attempt.
i had this canvas bag from walmart that i got on clearance for $1. and some hawaiian fabric from the remenants. at the time, i didnt realize that it said 'toranto maple leafs' on it. and why would a hockey team need hawaiian print fabric?
i wanted to use hawaiian print for parkers teachers bag because she went to byu hawaii for her schooling.
i cut out some of the flowers and started to machine sew them on. that looked like poo.
i didnt even bother taking a photo.
i used some fabric glue and put glue on all the edges and slapped them to the bag.
this method worked TONS better.
i then filled it with fun summery stuff...a towel, water bottle, blow up beach ball, sun block.
of course, with year round school, her 'summer vacation' is only 3 weeks.
