Number 1 son left junior school last week so he wanted to do something really special for all of the teachers he has had through year 6. I noticed during Open Evening that they each had his graffitti-esque name drawings on paper in their rooms so I suggested to him that he make them a canvas version each, and this is the result.
Number 2 son is not quite as creative as his brothers (he is too busy playing sport) but asked if he could personalise a lavender heart for his teacher, so she now has something to remember him by!
Number 3 son has had a wonderful first year at junior school and has had a fantastic teacher so we decided she deserved something a bit special. He always enjoys the sewing in DT classes so we found a poem that we liked and he made this.....
He and his teacher decided to dispense with their correct names this year and have referred to themselves as Vaughny and Jonesy since Christmas, so he has signed himself off appropriately! I can honestly say that I only put the fabric into the ring at the end, he wrote out the poem, did the sewing and put the brads in place himself, and was mighty pleased with himself too!
He also had a wonderful teaching assistant so he personalised a lavender heart too.
I can't deny that I'm indulging in a proud Mummy moment looking at these photos, I'm sure the teachers were thrilled to have been given something handmade.
Join me over at Homemade Harbour (http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/) for Handmade Monday, catching up on all that has been crafty this week. Having been away for a couple of weeks, I can't wait to catch up with everyone!
