    What could I make for a teacher

    My daughter has ask me to make a quilted gift for each of my three grandchildren's teachers. I am not sure what to make for them. I am open to some ideas that any of you may have.

    Thanks,
    Mary/stitchengramie

    I like Rootyr's idea of totes. I think mug rugs would be nice too.

    Totes are a great idea, what about Holiday table runner since you dont know their home colors, something simple, candle mats.

    I never knew a teacher that didn't love another bag

    I would stick with something simple. I am hoping to do some mug rugs for my son's teachers and then add a cup with Hot Chocolate mix with it. There are Cup Cozies out there that are also easy and fun to do. They would help with organizing pencils and pens on the Teachers desk. A small wall hanging that incorporates school and teaching would also be great. Can not wait to see what you come up with.

    How about these mug "bucket" organizers? They take just a little over an hour each if you're quick, and my daughter, who is a 5th grade teacher decided to make them for each of the teachers on her team because she thought they'd be " a teacher gift they'd really use!" http://www.quiltingboard.com/pictures-f5/mug-"buckets"-t163322.html

    I agree with all the options above... totes, mug rugs, or maybe

    snap bags

    or a small wallhanging with an Apple & A-B-C appliqued?

    I have a daughter in kindergarden. I've thought about getting sets of tea towels and appliqué snow men on them for her 3 teachers (1 primary teacher and 2 aids) and her 2 bus drivers as Christmas gifts.. Totes are a great idea too!
