Made with Love to a Teacher from her Students
A client asked me to create something "magical" as a going away gift (the teacher is expecting her first child and decided to stay at home)... After meeting with the parents and getting a general idea what they wanted, The above drawing is what i came up with. I put Freezer paper on the back of Muslin and drew a "outline" of where the students could draw to (so they wouldn't go outside the lines), and sent them to school...The kids all created magic on their ind. blocks (alot of those kids really have talent), then brought them home and heat set each one....Took one of the moms to the fabric store and used the drawing as a quide to pick out fabrics. The following pictures are how it turned out before giving it to the teacher. I received a thank you from one of the moms and how nice it was to see all the kids excited to point out the indiv. blocks to the teacher when the presented it to her on her last day.
