Gifts for teachers

Postby keljbj » Sat Jul 16, 2011 12:02 pm

I wanted to make something nice, but a bit different, for Keane's teachers. He has two teachers, who jobshare, and a teaching assistant who spends alot of time with them (its a very small school, so there are two year groups in each class). We don't have an awful lot of money to spare atm, so it had to be something simple.

I came up with the idea of covering a notepad for each of them. Dh manages a branch of a national stationers, so he got me the notepads with his discount :giggle: , Keane chose the fabric and i got to work.

This is what i came up with

The buttons are my own handmade Indi-Panda ones too :giggle:

The covers are removeable, so when they use up the notepad they can just buy a new one and reuse the cover. I didn't take a photo, but they have a pocket on both inside covers too :D

Dh now wants me to make one for his work diary, and Sasha wants one for her sketch pad :giggle:

Oh I would love that too if you find the time. They look fab, and as DH says I have a stationary addiction it would be like getting a new notebook by just changing covers :hohoho: :hohoho: :hohoho:
