I thought this would be a perfect teacher gift - it can be a necklace for spirit days or cut short and hooked onto a keychain or lanyard for everyday use. Hopefully I'm not the only one loving these pendants. I made it when I made all my other Glass Tile Pendants (follow the link for a how-to) in anticipation of needing an end-of-the-year gift. For the actual image I took the school mascot, opened it in Photoshop Elements like a picture, and then followed the directions HERE to shrink it down.
Then last minute I decided to expand the present and I made a couple of towels with the teacher's initial (I love my embroidery machine in that I can just whip up a present like this on a whim!). I thought towels would be a handy thing to have in any elementary classroom, right? The towels were bought on clearance after Easter and I thought they were fun enough for this project.
A quick ribbon tie and it's looking great - I just need to have my child attach a handwritten "thanks for being an awesome teacher" type of thing, and we're good to go.
Of course, this in on several Link Parties - I hope you've checked out that list!
