end of the school year

teacher gifts

Tomorrow is the last day of school and I like to give the teachers a thank you present. I found this really great idea at Lisa Storm's blog here (those tags are a free printable!) and knew it was what I wanted to do this year.

I decided I wanted to add some crochet to the gift, so I made some coffee cozies using this pattern. I didn't like how the center was turning out, so I made it just simple sc's around. I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton in white for both the cozies.

Inside the cups, my daughter wrote out a thank you card for both her teacher and the teacher aid and then I stuffed some packets of iced tea and lemonade to go with the theme of the gift.

  3. Those are sooo cute! I love the little sayings on the straws - very cleaver! I hope they liked them!

  4. Such a nice thoughtful gift. They turned out great. I would be thrilled if you shared this project at my link party.
