    Finished bags

    I made these bags for teachers that I work with...a year end gift. I'm excited to give them and spring will soon be in the air here in MN. haha I hope I can wait to give them...June is forever away! I'm a special ed paraprofessional and help out in their classrooms. Do you think I should put a little something in the bags?

    cute bags, love the pocket treatment
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    These are so perfect, as a retired teacher; I can say any teacher will love these . The prints are wonderful. Good job!

    Cute bags.....how about putting in a pack of pencils, pens, notebooks, etc that you pick up at the Dollar Store so it will not cost you a lot.

    Cute bags, and great idea. As a retired teacher, I can tell you teachers never have enough bags to carry all their "stuff".

    Great bags, Crafy-Kid! I always loved nice roomy bags to carry back and forth; can never have enough. It's nice to have one that can be washed! Your co-workers will love them. As a retired teacher, I want to thank you for the job that you do. Paraprofessionals are a valuable asset to the school family.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Very cute! My mother-in-law taught me you never give someone a purse or bag with nothing in it. A good luck thing I guess. So that's what I always do. I like the idea of school supplies.

    The bags are a gift-not necessary to put anything inside. (maybe a note of appreciation)

    Like GailG, I want to say 'thank you' for making a difference in a child's life especially one with special needs.

    I think it would be great to have the students write\draw something for the teacher and put those notes in the bag.

    As a former special ed teacher, I can tell you they will love them, because teachers never have enough totes. They are very pretty, and nice colors. Teachers love colorful things around their kids.
