And he turns three on Wednesday! I cannot believe how big he's getting. Where did my baby go?
Okay, enough of that. We absolutely loved his toddler-room teachers, so I wanted to make them a little thank-you gift before B moved on. I made each of his female teachers a zipper pouch, and we got his male teacher a Starbucks gift card (hidden inside that little fox "wallet"). All of them included a little fox fabric, of course, to remind them of B.
I was really pleased with how they turned out, but man did I have trouble with these things. I have made a lot of zipper pouches in my day, and I don't know why these proved to be so testy, but suffice it to say that everything that could go wrong went wrong -- broken zippers, layers sewn in the wrong order, seam-ripping galore, failing to unzip the zipper before sewing the lining in (so I couldn't turn it right-side out). Yeesh. I'm having nightmares just thinking about it. But they're done, and I hope his teachers love them.
I've been busy on lots of other projects, too, so hopefully I'll be back soon with more. I owe you a Halloween post, too...
