Teacher Gift

I made an extra special teacher gift for my son's Kindergarten teacher this year.  She did such a great job with Eli and worked extra hard to make sure he had a great year.  I wanted to make sure she knew all her hard work was appreciated, especially as this was her first year teaching! 

I had seen the idea on a blog somewhere to make a "movie night" gift bag and thought it was so cute!  We got some microwave popcorn, movie theater candy, trail mix, a bottle of water, and a gift card to Blockbuster.

I put it all in this little tote that I made from leftover scraps from my most recent project.  I lined the tote with some soft but sturdy felt to give it a little stiffness and to hide all the seams from piecing the project together. 


  1. LOVE it! What a great idea. Let me know if you start selling them. I'd love to give my son'd teacher this :) You are endlessly talented!

  2. Stacy, I'm willing to make just about anything you an request (as long as I'm capable!) contact me for a quote!

  3. what a great idea! as a teacher, i know how wonderful it is to be appreciated, too! love the bag!

  4. This is such an awesome idea!! I absolutely love it and might just have to replicate this for Pi's teachers this year. Did you use a pattern for the bag or did you wing it?

  5. LOVE IT! You are really setting the bar high for the rest of us! ;-)
