It's that time of the school year again where we say good-bye for the summer. It is particularly hard this time as DD2 is leaving her primary school and friends. The chats at the school gate for me are coming to an end and the community that has seen me through ups and downs and thick and thin (waistline) will disperse as our children start a new journey in September at high school.
The last few years have been fabulous for my daughter at her school and this year was just the same. Her 2 teachers worked so well as a team and always seem to know what was going on even though it was a job share. As you can imagine I couldn’t let the year end without doing something special for those ladies who made the last year of primary so special. So out came the patterns and the fabric and I made them each a Bento Lunch Bag and Dumpling Pouch which was then filled with goodies. To add to the enjoyment of making them I dug out the hand crank Singer sewing machine and sat on the patio to sew them. I loved every minute of it…even though it took a bit of ambidextrous coordination to hold the fabric and turn the crank with my right hand :o)
Inside each bag I included a mug, some tea, chocolates, biscuits and some sweets. I hope they enjoy them.
Until next time...♥
