December Run Down #2- Teacher Gifts

I made the bags pictured below for Morgan and MaKenna's wonderful  homeroom teachers. They are made using my own pattern and some of my favorite Heather Baily, Amy Butler, and other designer's fabrics. I made cute notebook covers for their special areas teachers, but forgot to take pictures of those. Since Mary Alex is in middle school and has several teachers, I wrapped a mini Slinky for each with a little saying about being a kid again this Christmas. I also gave the slinky's as a gift to my co-workers. I thought they would be fun stress relievers.

BAG #1
A.) The front of the bag. 
B.) Close up of the bird
C.) The inside-back, the inside-front has pockets made from the large scale polka dot that is inside the pictured pocket. The bag fastens closed with a magnetic snap.
D.) The back of the bag.

BAG #2
A.) The front of the bag. 
B.) Close up of the bird
C.) The inside-back, the inside-front has pockets made from the outside floral. The inside fabric is actually lime green, but did not read well in the pictures.The bag fastens closed with a magnetic snap.
D.) The back of the bag. I attempted an outside pocket, but it is too small to probably be very useful.

  8. I like the bags. I've made bags myself. They are a lot of work to put together especially if you use a zipper. These bags are nice.
