For those of you who don't know, my daughter has switched schools (again)... she's now at a specialized school (still in our district). If you've been around a lot you'd know that Allie has battled with a lot of behavior related and hearing related school problems. Well, her new school is awesome! Allie has been at the new school for about three months now, and we've noticed a huge huge huge change in her behavior. It's so amazing. We're very grateful for to the staff - the teachers and aids, and everyone who helps make every day successful for Allie.
So - how could I give an end of the year "thanks" to just her home room teacher? I couldn't. I decided to make a simplified gift for each of the people who help Allie at school on a daily basis. Yes, that's eleven people (not counting the bus driver who will get some treats of another sort). Yes. ELEVEN. lol
Here's the end result of 3/4 yard of fabric, a dozen zippers, and a couple hours. Eleven laminate box pouches. Insane!
These are so much fun! I sewed them assembly line style - one step at a time. It really went fast and my only regret is that Hobby Lobby didn't carry actual Oilcloth. The laminate is for suckers.
