Kinder Surprise

Well... it won't be much of a surprise if any of the kindergarten staff read my blog...

Using my coin purse patterns, some inkjet printer fabric, scraps of fabric and some swivel hooks...

I used copies of my wee girl's art (HERE's how..) and made individual purses for each of the lovely women who looked after her so well this year.


The images will hopefully bring smiles long after the girl herself has gone on to 4-year-old kinder and forgotten all about them.

Lovely! So much nicer and more useful than the little flowered hankies my mum used to give to the teachers when we kids were small.

Gosh, what a lovely and imaginative idea. They will just love and treasure them! I just made my son's carer of two years a purse using fabric her Mother kept in her stash for 30years! They do such a wonderful job you just want to give them something special in return don't you?

That's super cute Nikki!

Wow! Lucky kinder teachers! I especially love the personal touch of the artwork. I am sure that is the bit they will treasure the most.

You know Nikki, I never get tired of reading about presents made for teachers. It means so much to receive a present from a child (which really means it is from their parent) as it is a sign that they appreciate what you did for their child.

The teachers will LOVE LOVE LOVE these. Fantastic idea and awesome present.

Oh, blimey. That's GOOD. Really good. If only I was that organised and knew where that elusive inkjet printer fabric has pootled off to (turned the house upside down the other day).

Such a great idea! I'll have to remember this when my wee girl is old enough to draw!!

How gorgeous. She's super talented that wee girl, just like her Mum.
