teacher's gifts ~ snappy coin purses + ornaments


It's a bit panic stations over here, madly sewing presents for people. I have a couple of other gifts to finish but I actually managed to complete all the teacher's gifts just in the nick of time - it's the last day of term tomorrow!


These cute little coin purses are a great way to use up scraps. I had a lot of fun diving through my big scrap bag, mixing and matching prints. 

I added my favourite Kam snaps - I got a selection of different colours and handy snap pliers from a set on Ebay - for those of you in the UK a quick google has just shown they also have them on Amazon, there is a dedicated online shop Kam Snaps UK and Plush Addict stocks the snaps.


I love the way the little purse opens; perfect for holding coins, business cards, maybe a little emergency kit (plasters, safety pin etc).


The tutorial is the snappy coin purse by Rashida Coleman-Hale and I definitely recommend it, even after making 10! There is a bit of hand sewing to finish them off and it was a nice evening sofa job.


Each of the kids made ornaments for their teachers too. Just glitter felt, cut out circles and some shapes, confetti and pens! I punched a hole and added some baker's twine.


They wrote their names and the year on the back of the felt. I think it's a nice gift and I hope the teachers do too!

  3. I made one of these last year for my mum. She uses it as a jewellery keep when travelling. The perfect little bedside travel companion. I love that you made yours all from scraps!

  5. These are fabulous gifts and and make a change from the many boxes of chocolates we receive. Chocolates are wonderful, but we can only eat so many boxes of them. My favourite gif this year was a Christmas tea light jar made by one of my year one children, simple but beautiful, it meant a lot because there had been extra thought and time going into it.x
