I love making teacher gifts this time of year.
This year is no different, I am making everyone heat therapy lavender pillows, since this school year has been a little stressful.
I found the sewing tutorial from Crafty Critique: Tutorial: Heat Therapy Pillow.
I chose to use this pattern because of the slip pillow case that is removable.
The fabric is from the Secret Garden collection by Sandi Henderson for Michael Miller fabrics.
I am also going to wrap them up with a cute poem I found it goes like this...
This little pillow filled with rice,
Is such a comforting device.
Microwave for 2 minutes on high
And relax your muscles with a sigh.
Apply it to the troubled spot,
The heat will ease the pain a lot.
Or warm those little toes so cold,
You'll find this nice to have and hold.
Or freeze it for a little while,
And fix that booboo up in style.
Instead of a compress made of ice,
Use this pillow filled with rice.
Each year I like to spoil the teachers at school with a fun handmade gift. I look for sewing projects that are easy to make, use little fabric and time.
Here are a few more gift ideas for teachers, friends or family.
It is never to late to share a handmade gift with a friend. These ideas are quick and easy to make.
Sometimes I make a few extra things just in case someone special drops by, like a neighbor.
