May's Goal: School Gifts

It's that time of year - crunch time for the end of school. I have 4 weeks before the end of school and just yesterday I was informed that next week is teacher appreciation week. Why do they never put that on the school's calendar to give me a heads up about it?!

So my goal this month is to make some teacher gifts. His super amazing 1st-grade teacher will be getting a rope bowl accented with purple fabrics (her favorite color) that will be filled with all sorts of fun goodies like coffee and gift cards. She will also get a handmade zipper pouch.  So far, the only thing I've pulled are the fabrics for the pouch:

I'd also like to make either zipper pouches or small rope bowls for his secondary teachers - for a total of 3 more gifts - for music, PE, and art.  So that's a total of 5 gifts in all, but given that they're smaller, it's totally doable.

Linking up to this month's OMG over at Elm Street Quilts.


  1. The pouch fabric has me drooling already, such rich colours.
    Would you to see photos of the rope bowls, please.

  2. What a lovely idea for teacher gifts. Love the purples.

  3. lovely gifts these will make, this must put pressure on those who do not have much money having a week for giving gifts to teachers, I do not think it happens here in the UK it certainly didn`t when my daughters or granddaughter were at school

  4. Great idea for teach gift. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project!

  5. All will be such nice gifts. That purple fabric truly is beautiful :)

  6. Oh we never had a teacher appreciation week in the uk . Maybe I should be glad ! Though of course I appreciated all the teachers my children had

  7. These will be excellent gifts. I agree on the Teacher's Appreciation week, I never seem to find out about it until the day or two before it starts.
