Kindergarten Teacher Gifts

memmu says:

"I haven't had much time or energy to create but still wanted to make something by myself for Lauri's teachers... I wrapped up some little Moomin towels and made those fabric-button flowers to be added on the package. I think these turned out quite pretty :). "

Octopus Gift Bag

FeltedChicken says:

"Hate throwing away those expensive paper gift bags you buy at the store? Instead try wrapping your presents in one of these high quality, durable, recyclable, hand-sewn bags that is a gift in itself! This Re-Gift Bag is sized to hold up to 2 dvd's or video games, and has velcro to close the package. Plus it has an all-occasions designs; it's bright blue with a red rick-rack & an octopus silhouette."

I especially like the red detailing at the seams.

Available at her etsy shop.

from M&J Trim -- this package uses their silk ribbon and rhinestone buckle closure. Very impressive, isn't it?
