Xmas presents

I have been rather quiet (read busy) lately due to the sudden (!) and numerous Christmas presents required for school teachers and colleagues etc. So, here is a gallery of a few I made - all very personal.


Libery tana lawn zipper patchwork pouch
Liberty pouch for a work colleague (love love love how this turned out!)
Detail of the zip pull - a wool felt ball, a Jade ring and a Swarovski crystal.

The lining.

And this pouch is for the head of academic studies at my daughter's school.

 The new Windham school house fabric range has lovely letter panels
 which made this an easy project to personalise.  

Detail of the zip pull. 
The red London map fabric has the school location in it.

This is the back with a piece of school uniform in the bottom corner!

Pouches have been popular presents in the past - so, I am on a roll!
This one is for the science teacher who is leaving for a gap year, which she is planning to sepnd travelling. The sceleton in her lab is decorated with a feather hat, scarf and a handbag...
The front with the happy scellies.
 
The back - Bon Voyage and see you next year!
  
The lining - just like on a ship sailing away.

Detail of the zip pull - makes a simple pouch quite special.

And last, but not least, this is an A4 size document pouch for the form teacher who is also head of maths at my daughter's school.
Stamped name and lots of number fabrics for the maths teacher.
I had to gather lots of number and London fabrics for this...
