.Teacher Christmas gifts.

I don't know about you, but I have such gratitude for my children's school teachers. We have been so blessed to have an amazing bunch of school teachers again this year and it is always sad to say goodbye to them at the end of the school year. 
I was super organised this year and started the teacher presents about a month before they were due to be gifted. Which was a good thing because all the kids came down sick during the last week of school and even missed out on a lot of the end of year fun at school so I wouldn't have had time to put anything creative together.

When I have made personalised zippered pencil cases for the teachers in the past, they have been thrilled. The kids wrote their teachers names for me again, which traced using a water erasable pen and then embroidered.
(I love Tommy's backwards "c")
It's been awhile since I last had a good dig through my fabric scrap bin, I had forgotten about some of the pretties in there! As usual, I used my zippered pouch tutorial for these.

And hip, hip horray! We are on Summer holidays. Such a good feeling to know that there is no morning rush or school drop off/pick up to time Harvey's naps around. I love the Summer holidays and this year we have a very special surprise planned for the kids that they don't know about yet, but will find out on Christmas day! It's gonna be fun!

So if this is your summer break, will the kids get new teachers when they return to school? Is this a long break for y'all...a couple months, like our summer?
