Still on the subject of end of term teacher’s gifts here.
The last day of term was also the last day at school for a special teacher at Missy and Matey’s school – Mr T! He has been the only male teacher at the school for 5 years and both Missy and Matey were taught by him. They really liked Mr T and so did The Mr and I, so we wanted to give him a special gift.
Now, crochet is my thing but what do you crochet for a male teacher?
Somehow, a pretty crochet notebook….
and pretty crochet coasters didn’t seem appropriate!
Not nearly manly enough! So, I thought I’d stick with what I know but with a little adaptation.
Here’s what I made
But instead of a crochet backing I tried out a fabric back to the cushion. This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while in terms of efficiency and pricing of the cushions that I make to sell….but that’s a whole other blog post.
So, a manly crocheted gift? Hmmm, not sure I achieved that objective really, but I think Mr T liked it.
What do you think? I’m off to search for Manly Crochet on Pinterest
