Teacher Appreciation Week part 2

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3, 2016. Here are a couple more ideas using Embroidery Garden designs to show that special teacher that you care.

A personalized key fob is the perfect little thank you for any teacher. Click here for the design. 

Most teachers LOVE coffee! If your little student's teacher is anything like me...they drink TONS of coffee all through the day. I used the Monogram Coffee Sleeve from Embroidery Garden and added "Best Teacher". Click here for the Monogram Coffee Sleeve. 

As a teacher myself, I really enjoyed making the snowballs for my kindergarten students. However, here is a Teacher Appreciation Day spin on the snowballs. Add "# 1 Teacher" to the face file of the Snowball. I used the fonts from my software. When sewing the panels together, insert a piece of Rick Rack folded upside down at the top of the apple. Once the panels are sewn together like the instructions for the Snowballs. Once the snowball is sewn shut, pinch the middle and sew down the middle like the tomato for the wrist pincushion. Make sure you catch the leaf in those stitches at the top too. Click here for the Snowball design. 


  1. a cinnamon stick would make a nice stem too, and a felt leaf could be glued to it.
