A Special Gift for a Special Teacher
Ms. Ree was Beadboy1's teacher for three years. She's taught him to read and write, and put up with the interminable toilet-training and month-long colds and his obsession with Muppets. So scented candles or pretty soaps wouldn't cut it.
I don't remember where I got the idea for this, but it was at least partly inspired by various handprint embroideries floating around the internet. (Nor am I the only one to think of doing something like this for a teacher.) I had Beadboy1 write out his little thank you note on paper. I retraced in in sharpie, transferred it to the fabric, and embroidered in in backstitch. I wrapped the outer hoop in purple ribbon, finished the back, and voila!
Ms. Ree loved it.
