My friend told me that teachers prefer to get a bottle of wine or cash instead of the homemade kid art picture frame with the class picture, but I think this is a pretty cool end of the year gift:
My daughter has a favorite art teacher she’s been following from one class to the next. As part of the animation class she made this bird.
I scanned it and printed it on a silk inkjet fabric sheet. Cotton would have been better, but this household is currently out of cotton.
Then I attached fusible web to birdie and ironed it to the flap of a canvas bag. Birdie was further secured with zigzag stitches and embellished with a few outline stitches.
Two vintage buttons finished it off and there’s a cool to-go bag.
This would also be a good grandparent, or cool cousin gift.
