My son has an outstanding teacher this year who is also an EMT.  I wanted to do something special for her that was more than the usual gift card, etc.  So...I made her this tote bag.

This little cutie ambulance I purchased from www.quiltware.com and then found my fabric in the scrap bin at Joanne's the outside is a dark denim and the interior is just a cotton.

It is also reversible!


I am really please with how the handles turned out too!

I am hoping she likes it...she has made such a difference for my son this year!

The tote is wonderful!  I'm sure the teacher will love it!

I suggest embroidering the year and you child's name somewhere (maybe on the top of the lining) along with a simple thanks (or you could use permanent marker).  I was a teacher for 7 years before I became a SAHM and still use and cherish some of the gifts my kids got me.  I like having the student's name on the gift itself so I'm sure to always remember where it came from.
