Dinoboy and I had the following conversation early last week ...
Dinoboy: Mummy, are you going to make my teachers some presents for the end of term?
Me: Teachers? I thought you only had one teacher - Miss L.
Dinoboy: Oh yeah - well she's the main teacher for my class but there are two others.
Dinoboy: Yes. There is Miss T who teaches us Maths and there's Miss C who takes us for Languages.
Me: So what does Miss L do then?
Dinoboy: She takes us for Literacy of course. And she really likes purple.
Me: Okayyyy - so you want me to make presents for all of them?
Dinoboy: Well, it's only fair, isn't it? Maybe you can make them a bag or a purse each. But don't forget, Miss L REALLY likes purple.
I decided to go with zipaway totes this year as teacher appreciation gifts. Here is Miss L's reusable shopping tote.
I paired Alexander Henry's Yui Kokeshi in black with this purple and white dotted cotton.
I love how cute this looks when it's zipped away.
One down, two more to go. I best get a move on as the school year ends the week after next.
