So the time has come where tired little people get to spend six weeks relaxing. After spending a whole year building relationships and learning new skills and just growing up. And it’s at this time of year we all just like to say thank you to the other main adult in our children’s life besides us. Yes thats it. It’s the teachers. The ones that will effect our children’s lives now, no matter how small the action.
I even now remember them special teachers that I had growing up. So we all agreed on mug of love. I had made these before for previous teachers but I had just used acrylic yarns and not put much towards it. Budget was a factor too. Also my little ones were a bit smaller and them times before it was more a thank you from me for the child care and not so much from the children.
But this year was different, they were awear and wanted to say thank you from them. So this year we really went for it and said a big thank you.
So we dyed our own wool. ” Just like mummy”. Just for our mug hugs. We then went to choose our mugs for our teachers.
buttons were hand made from the magpies eye. She has a Facebook page. She makes fantastic resin buttons she can even make clocks and all sorts of items. Check out her Facebook page. The magpie eye
These are all the little added extras I had placed in. I made some cloth make up remover pads. A bag charm or magnet and tea, coffee and hot chocolate.
The bag charms and magnets were from
Then for the finishing touch cello wrap to wrap up the mug which had these wonderful butterflies on them. These really were a joy to make and the huge smiles from the kids and teachers. What a amazing way to say thank you.
Now to get ready for the six weeks of fun and adventure. Wishing you all a fantastic summer. See you all on the other side
All the best
Hooks and dye.
