Dear Chicago House,
Exam season is in full force and I have to say I am so glad my exam taking days are over! Miss Chicago teen seems to have had a whole year of tests from the ACT and SAT and more recently completed a whole batch of AP exams. She now just has a couple of school finals left before those lazy days of summer are on her.
Last year I made THIS little good luck gift and this year stepped it up a bit.
Meet Mr Good Luck Mouse and his teddy!
My major inspiration was this pin – leads to a pattern you can buy but I just bodged it.
To make it yourself here is what you need
- Altoid tin
- Felt peices
- a scrap piece of cotton fabric for the pillow
- embroidery thread
- sewing machine
Hopefully you can work out how to construct it by looking at the photos…it is a very easy sewing project! You could embroider anything you like on the blanket, a name, Happy Birthday, Well Done!, Congrats..the list is endless. I thought it would also be a good little gift for any kids going off to camp this summer.
Now lets hope Mr good luck Mouse and his teddy did their job!
