Zac's cousin's girlfriend (that's a mouthful - let's just call her my friend) By'Shey is a first year teacher, and I wanted to make her something special for her classroom. I immediately thought of Melissa's tutorial for the perfect sized table topper that could easily be hung on the wall too. A few modifications, and this baby was born.
So... I present to you, the world's cutest back to school table topper!
It was tricky coming up with different school themed shapes... I went with letters, a book, a chalkboard (embroidered to say "I love my teacher"), an apple and a pencil. The apple and pencil are my favorites.
I literally just searched google images for "clip art" + "teacher" and found some that would make good appliqué shapes. Beautiful.
She loved it, and it's going to look great in her classroom! That being said, it would be a fun table topper to take out each year at home when your kids go back to school. It's super fast to put together. I'm usually a quilt store fabric snob, but all of this fabric came from JoAnn's. Since this isn't something she'll probably be washing often, that should be fine.
Hope you like it - happy back to school!
