Teacher Gifts

My sons wanted to make something special for their teachers as an end of the year "thank you". So they decided on a pillow. They drew a picture of their teachers with them and embroidered over the pictures. We (mostly me because of my horrible procrastination habit,) have been making them into pillows. They wanted them scrappy and "not too straight" as Lore insisted.
They aren't the best pictures, and it's raining here, so absolutely no good light. But it gives you an idea.

For their teacher aids we are giving them each Haagen Dazs ice cream gift certificates. With a spoon that says "You're the sweetest."

I hope they are well received.

I'm hoping to finish all of these up by tomorrow night.

These are spectacular. What a wonderful idea. I'm sure their teachers are going to cherish them.

Thank you so much. Their teachers did love them. One of them has it in her classroom and keeps it on her chair for back support this year.

Oh I love these. Your kids did a wonderful job, but you really outdid yourself interpreting their drawings with thread. marvelous.
