Both my sons are in school and i'd like to MAKE a gift for teachers, but i'd really rather not spend $$ (because then i'd rather buy a starbucks card or something...lol)
I sew pretty well, but I don't have much in the way of wovens. I do have lots of knits since I sew pjs and shirts and boxers for the kiddos, and I have some minky and organic bamboo velour scraps.
I made ruffled end scarves for my nieces for xmas last year and I had fabric to make them and they were a HIT....but such a pain to make, and I don't think I have any girly color interlocks long enough to make an adult sized one (3yrds I need I think? makes 3 scarves, but you need that much for length) so i'd end up spending 20+ bucks on a cut big enough...
right now thats the only thought i had.
Oh, and I do have some small cuts of wool from pendleton, but I've never made a hat before so i'd like to wait until i've done some trial and error on that first.
Has anyone seen any cute gifty projects that might fit the bill??
makes me remember the gift my mom did for my kindy teacher (yes, I still remember)
she took a small cheap wood shutter, like for a window, and painted/stenciled it and then put white address labels along one whole side of the shutter slats. it was for phone numbers!
you hung by your phone and clicked shutters open for numbers and closed to make your house look pretty.
it was pretty darn nifty, but nobody needs those these days! lol.
