I need a cool gift to give my teacher who loves sewing.  Anyone have any ideas of something I could give her or make?

I like the pin cushion idea.  Possibly a sewing chest for all her sewing items?

I am a sewer and I never have enough seam rippers and sharp scissors.  Do you want to make her something or do you want to buy her something?  An apron to put all of her things she uses frequently might be nice.  A gift card to get all of her scissors sharpened would be nice too.  The roll cutter and mat is great too.

Whatever you get her, a sewer is usally appreciative....... .smile.  Wink

scissors, seam rippers, interfacing, pin cushions,  thread/ trash catcher (great ones on here)  needles for the machine, thread white and black are always used,  and apron with a  pin cushion on it,  gift card inside a fancied sewing box.  great for you !  let us know what you come up with.
