Teachers presents

I have to say I am not good in giving presents especially for teachers. I made a "good-bye" present for the Kindergarten when we left Austria but I think that was all I ever did. Except from cakes and biscuits during the school year. So this year my girl started to make a mug rug for her teacher. She had a lovely teacher who encouraged her and the school report was fantastic! So because my little one is terrible hard to teach - no, she is!!! ask her teachers!!! - and because I saw Rhondas teabag this morning I went straight sewing to be finished in time. It was straight forward and really easy to make.

Every morning I came into school the teachers are running around with their tea cups straight to their class rooms. So I might not be totally wrong if she gets a pouch for her tea bags. I am not sure she likes my selection of teas!

My little one was also going to the support teacher and she did not behave different there than she did in class so I made a little mug rug for her. I put a little pocket in the front so she can keep sugar or a spoon there or a tea bag as well. I used a text fabric I got at the Quilt Festival but I am not sure if she knows a type writer ....

Just need to put them in a lovely cover and give them away! So the summer can start....


  1. They're wonderful gifts! I'm sure they'll be an absolute hit with the teachers!

  2. You did a fab job! I love your fabric choices.

  3. Very sweet! I think they will be much appreciated!

  4. Oh these are fun and bound to be appreciated. I love the idea of putting the little pocket on the mug rug.
