Teachers gifts

I don't even remember if I made teacher's gifts last year.... oh that's right I moved house last xmas and made quilts for the twins in the weeks before we moved... because that's what they wnated :)
So no excuse this year to whip up a little something for some absolutely lovely teachers. We have been lucky this time round with the kids loving their new school, making friends easily and having great teachers tooo. Can't ask for more than that now can you!

I came across this cute coffee cozzies tutorial and couldn't go past them.

While out xmas shopping yesterday I found some silver star tree ornaments and mini bonbons with truffles inside and thought they would go nicely with the coffee vouchers that all manage to fit inside the coffee cups. Now cross fingers they love a good cuppa!

And here is a sneky peek at the stocking I made for my swap partner in Selina's Great stocking swap of 2010. I had a lot of fun making it, I just hope my partner likes it too.


  1. Fabulous teacher gifts! I can't imagine them not being happy.
    Loving the stocking.

  2. They are fantastic gifts and I love the stocking too!

  3. I am DYING to see the rest of that stocking!!!! Just the sneak peek is gorgeous!!!

  4. Aww thanks you guys :)
    Hoping my swap partner gets her package soon so I can do a full reveal. Thanks for holding this swap Selina, you've been awesome. x

  5. Tracey! Being a dinosaur this is the only way I could work out to contact you! I just picked up my stocking....LOVE LOVE LOVE it soooo much, you are sooooo clever. I was so overexcited when I opened it to find; BEAUTIFUL fabric! wrapped up with an even more gorgeous velvet ribbon. And seeing as I just returned from the UK with a bit of a homesickness to deal with, a whole bunch of British sweets!! Including Galaxy minstrels my favourite!!!!!!The stocking is divine and the buttons on it are gorgeous. I am going to blog about it soon. I'll let you know when i do. THANK YOU XXXXXX
