End Of Year Teacher Gift

It's that time of year. I'm sure you all have seen Teacher Gifts all over Blog land. A while ago we bought Fabric Crayons on a whim while shopping at Joann's. Since then, Maddie has been bugging me to try them out. I thought that a Teacher Gift would be the perfect opportunity.

Of course I forgot to take a finished picture of the Teacher's gift before we gave it to her, but I sent the crayons to school with Maddie and asked her teacher to draw Maddie a picture for a special end of year gift for her too.

The Supplies needed for this gift are:

 - White (or light) fabric
 - Fun fabric for the back
 - Fabric Crayons
 - White paper
 - Iron

I had Maddie draw a picture that she thought her teacher would like. In her words, this is a barn with Mary, baby Jesus, Maddie and Ms. M. Can you tell goes to a Christian School? I wanted her name to be on it as well, but the drawing transfers backwards so I had her write her name on a page in pencil and traced over it in Fabric Crayon on the back of the paper.

Her teacher lives on a farm and is married to a rodeo cowboy so this is the fabric she chose on the back.

Now Maddie and her amazing Pre-K teacher have matching pillows to remember each other by. :)
