End of Term Treats
As this academic year draws to a close, it's time to get stitching and crafting to remember all those hardworking individuals who make such a difference to the world of our children.
Alice requested a little handbag mirror, made using my trusty badge machine for her teacher. I based the cute applique on the 'Apple Thanks' digital stamp which available exclusively at Handmade Harbour.
It's such a versatile design and looks equally gorgeous when used in paper crafting, as this fabulous card expertly demonstrates. It was made by the very talented Teresa over at The Fat Cactus, a beautiful blog well worth visiting.
We found a fat quarter of fabric which was absolutely perfect for what we wanted, as it features various French patisserie recipes, including pancakes and crepes. Another plus point was the black background, which will complement any colour scheme, and also shouldn't need washing too often when hung in a busy classroom or steamy kitchen!
In order to use the fabric as economically as possible some flags are actually upside down but they still look pretty cute and really rather shabby chic. Bunting always makes a perfect gift and I posted a nice and simple tutorial here should you fancy whipping up some up for yourself.
George then designed and printed an elegant bag topper to use as packaging, which I inked and glittered.
Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who have touched the life of my children!
