It's that time of year when we thank all the lovely teachers in our children's lives for all their hard work throughout the school year. First graders recently, as in the past week, hatched chicks for a local farm. I was wracking my brain for an idea and a stuffed chicken presented itself in the form of one of my student's projects (I teach sewing lessons here and there). As I helped this individual navigate a tutorial for making a stuffed chicken, I couldn't help but think how perfect this would be for my child's teacher. Not only as an end of year gift, but as a mascot for the project in coming years.
Of course she needed a carrying case. Chick and egg fabric was in order. Thank you Heather for suggesting I buy this fabric in anticipation of Easter 2014...I never would have imagined using it for so many things already this year! Check out my baby shoes.
The class is going to name the chicken today at school. Wonder who she will be??? Whoever she is, I think she will be happy in her new home in First Grade.
