    My dgs's teacher likes roosters. We found this piece of pre-quilted fabric and daughter thought I should make a tote. It has been a real challenge to say the least. It doesn't look centered I know (it's not) The way it was printed the sunflowers would have been the center and that's not what I wanted. Truthfully I didn't realize until I had cut it out twice (expensive mistake) that it was that far off. Oh well, done now and my daughter loves it and feels the teacher will too. Had fun making little extra things. I may still make some other things. I made a mug rug that will go in there too.

    What is the name of that fabric? I have a friend that loves roosters. I would love to make something for her using that fabric.

    Very nice. Her teacher will appreciate that you took the time to make her something with her favorite things on it.

    I'm a teacher, too, and I completely agree with pab58! Your daughter's teacher is going to absolutely love this gift! BTW: Your daughter sounds like a sweet, loving and generous girl and I'm glad you were able to help bring her idea to life!
