My teacher’s gifts are in the bag…

Nothing like leaving things to the last minute!  But I finally decided to make my kid’s teachers the Lickety Split Bag from Made by Rae.  I love the look of the bag, and the name sounded promising for a procrastinator.

And Rae was right.  This bag not only sews up lickety split, it is a wonderful bag pattern.  The instructions are clear and easy.  They couldn’t have been nicer to follow.

I made two, and I must say, I like the feel of the heavier Oz by Sanae from Moda fabric in the bag shown above.  It gives the bag a little extra weight.  I let my son pick the fabric for that bag, and I think he did well.

The other bag fabric was Lotus by Amy Butler, which I love, for the second bag.  And it turned out a very elegant.

I hope the bags will be useful in carrying books… or other supplies back and forth to school next year.

Last night after I finished them, I lay awake thinking of puns to put on a card…

“You’ve filled me with knowledge…”

“You’ve carried me on your shoulder this year…”

“My heart is split in two that this year is over…”

And I have one thing to say… it’s a good thing I didn’t act on my 1:30 am thoughts.

I think we’ll just settle on “Thank you.”
