Teacher gifts? Tick!

Yes, I did make the Friday afternoon deadline for our teacher gifts. I just haven't had a moment to post since!
The inspiration for these pencil rolls came originally from this post by Kathy at Pink Chalk Studio.
I used some gorgeous 'Follow Your Imagination' by Prints Charming for the outside of one of the rolls.
And some black & white 'Trio' by Timeless Treasures on the other. I love the little yellow birds on this print. This is one of the beautiful prints that my fellow fabric-holic friend Janelle has sent me this year. It was perfect for this project.
Next on the 'to do' list? A little 'something blue' for a wedding next weekend. Back with news on that front soon I hope!
Have a great week. Bloom x

  18. Those are really beautiful! I used to teach and I can tell you that such a thoughtful handmade gift would have been very well received on my end! That is so sweet of you! Here in the states it's cold and only getting close to the middle of the school year. I hope you enjoy your break with your little ones.
