It's no secret how much I appreciate the teachers in my boys' lives (you can can read about more gift ideas here). Since this is the season of giving I wanted to make them a little something to show that appreciation. I decided on mugrugs, I think they are so stinking cute (and useful too!). I had fun choosing fabrics for each teacher. I tried to use some of their favorite colors.

I used Amy from Diary of a Quilter's quick Table Runner Tutorial to put this one together. I loved how simple and fast it was. I will definately be using this method again soon! I also used Amanda Jean's "one way to machine~bind a quilt" tutorial for all of the bindings. Thanks Amy & Amanda Jean!
I rolled these little mug rugs up and added them to an adorable basket I got from thirty~one, along with a favorite drink, a favorite snack & a 'keep it warm/cold' cup (it was super cute all put together, wish I had taken a pic...oops!).
Did you spoil your child's teacher this Christmas? If so, please share in a comment. I am always looking for new ways to show our appreciation for all of the time they give our boys.
