The first is a Dr. Suess bag I made for my son's teacher.  He's in first grade and made great strides in learning to read this year so I really wanted her gift to be a big thank you for teaching him to read.  Not to mention that he loves reading!  The outside is cotton and fusible fleece.  The name is heat transfer I cut out with my silhouette and ironed onto canvas.  I erased the last name for posting.  The inside is canvas with a pocket and pencil pocket.  I also appliqued a note/picture from my son inside.  It ties closed with the ribbon.  We gave it to her along with his favorite Dr. Suess book.

Crappy pic but he wrote: "Thank you for an awesome year.  You are a star.  You are the best teacher in the whole world.  Love, Ashton".  I forgot to have him write the year so I added that with heat transfer.

Label inside the book that my son wrote a message on.  Last names erased.

I also made this simple tote for my friend's daughter to give her teacher.  Wish I would've made this one differently so it held it's shape better but it's canvas so it'll still be sturdy.  Last names erased.

These are darling. I think it so neat you had your son do this for his teacher. He'll remember this for a long time. They are very nicely made. So cute with his own writing in it too. Good job!!!  Roll Eyes

Love love LOVE the inside note. What a keepsake! Yet it's trendy and cute enough to carry for years, too. Great idea, and lovely work!

Thank you all so much!  My son's teacher said she nearly cried when she saw his writing.  I wanted it to be a keepsake for her but didn't want it to get outdated quickly so I figured putting all of the dated info inside would be best.  And Dr.Suess never goes out of style!
