With September came some group changes at my son’s daycare. He went from the Ladybug group to the Frog group. He his now part of the older kids at the daycare. This means SCHOOL next year, already! Anyway, I wanted to prepare a little something for his daycare teacher. I had thought about a notebook cover with a ladybug fabric I had found for her on an online shop. The fabric isEvening Light Ladybugs on Lanterns by Tina Givens from Cloe’s Imagination collection. I just love it.
At the end of August, Rachel Hauser from Stitched in Color posted a tutorial on how she does her lovely notebook covers. The timing was perfect! So, I made this notebook.
I mixed the ladybug fabric with a linen blend and other fabrics from my stash. Thanks Rachel for the tutorial!. I really like how it turned out.
My son had prepared with my help a ladybug paperweight. He painted a rock for this and we added some antennas using pipe cleaners. My only regret is that we forgot to sign his name and didn’t take any pictures of it. His daycare teacher was quite happy with her gifts. We also received some wonderful souvenirs of his year with her. She wrote us a letter which made me cry. She is a thoughtful and gentle person. My son really appreciates her and found it a bit hard first to no longer be in her group. But, he is quite happy with is new group and he is proud to have a book to make preschool activities.
