I’ve now achieved an important crafty mom milestone: my first round of teacher gifts.
What does one make when slightly pressed for time (aka, the night before rhe holiday party at daycare) but yet wants to slightly personalize the gift?
Answer: mug rugs (or snack mat, if you prefer).
I tried attempted to take into account the personalities of the munchkin’s three teachers, so they’re fairly scrappy.
After those 3, I nearly petered out with making mats for the 4 “breakers” who frequent the kiddos room. However, I made the decision to use some matchy fabrics and tried to sew as fast as possible.
I think they went over well, and if not, it wasn’t a huge time commitment on my part. And so begins handmade teacher gifts…guess I’ll be doing this for years to come!
