They did get finished, but not perfectly......
|Quilter in the Closet teacher gifts: Tinker Tote with beach goodies included|
I finished up this Tinker Tote for Lizzy's kindergarten teacher, filled it with stuff for the beach (a beach towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, reading material, and a beach hat), and photographed it. Then I left to pick up the kiddos from school, and it wasn't until I was driving around that I randomly started thinking about the straps of this bag. I dawned on me that I put them together wrong. DOH! It's only the 3rd Tinker Tote that I've made, and looking through the old pictures, I think I made the 2nd one with the same mistake. Clearly, despite watching the class (Craftsy- Quilt-As-You-Go: Patchwork Bags) as I made it, and referring to the notes, I completely missed that.
There was no time to fix it, so I had to give it as is. Hopefully, she will enjoy it all the same.
I also made a Divided Basket (pattern from Noodlehead) for Ashley's 2nd grade teacher who is expecting a baby during the summer. I filled her basket with diapers (of course), a few other little baby trinkets, and a copy of Outlander: A Novel by Diana Gabaldon (affiliate link). I included a little note of warning on the book. I have no trouble including others in my Outlander addiction, as long as they are forewarned.
