So Mr Cars' teacher got a pillow but I also made another 4 presents for the teacher's assistant and Miss Strawberry Shortcake's teachers. I found inspiration in the same lovely book Pretty in Patchwork Holidays to make some notebook covers for all 4 of them.
I had some cute printed linen that I had collected over the years, I asked the kids to pick up the linen they wanted and picked some solids to complement the linens.
These were easy to make and quite fun, I think I might try to make a few as Christmas presents if I get around to it! Speaking of Christmas, did you see the Christmas Quilt-Along which started in June on Joanna's blog? Sounds really fun but I don't think I'll have to join in sadly.
