With the school year coming to a close, I wanted to do something nice for the wonderful teachers in our life. When BurlapFabric.com sent me these adorable little tote bags to play around with, I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
Easy Burlap and Chalkboard Gift Bags.
A fun and easy little gift bag that everyone can make, even with the most limited of sewing skills. These bags fit around most bottles, and can also pull closed with the drawstring to hold gift cards and other fun goodies. They can not only be used for any holiday, but their recycle factor is awesome – as the receiver can simply wipe off the chalk name and reuse the bag for whatever they want!
Adding a chalkboard element is one of the hottest trends in crafting, and I am pretty sure no one can appreciate it as much as a school teacher can.
Quick, easy, and the perfect gift. Especially when you go ahead and add some of that yummy Trader Joe’s Sparkling lemonade…talk about the beginning of the perfect Summer picnic!
I also want to take a moment to say thank you.
Thank you to all of the teachers out there.
We have been so blessed this year with the most incredible teachers in our life, and I am so thankful. We’ve had teachers that you can only hope for, women with a true passion and gift for their work. They recognize the different needs and talents of their students, and help and encourage each and every one. And I am so thankful as a mother to know that there are teachers out there who care like this. In a broken world, with a broken school system, there are still amazing teachers. Teachers are one of the main forces in our children’s lives as they grow and develop, and they deserve recognition and to know that their work doesn’t go unnoticed. They are worthy of praise. Thank you.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…Happy Sewing.
