    I was also wondering what fabric you used to make the bag? It is adorable! It will make for perfect and unique teacher gifts this year. Thanks!

      Hi Britany, it is an older fabric from Heather Bailey.

    Made this today. Also made a zipper pouch and used ribbon to attach them together(sewed it into the seams of both). I know my kids teachers will love them. Thanks for the great idea!
