Posting two days in a row....I can't even believe it. And it is crafty, so I can link up with Monday Made it!
My classroom door doesn't stay open without a door stop. Currently, I have a hideous wooden thing pretending to be a doorstop. So I decided I needed a new doorstop. I started with a tutorial I found online. On a side note, one of my charming students likes to hide it whenever he gets mad at me, or someone in the class.
Then I went to the fabric store and found material...like the kind you use for picnic table cloths. Our floors get SUPER dirty and I wanted to easily wipe off dust/dirt. I followed most of the directions, but instead of filling with sand (I am not confident enough in my sewing skills to use sand and believe it wouldn't end up everywhere:-) So the bottom is triangle like. Then I filled the bag with decorative rocks. You could find them outside or at the dollar tree, which is where I found them. I zig-zagged stitched a complimentary strip across the top
Then I attached a bow onto a button and hot glued the buttons onto the front of the bag.
I made one for each of my grade level team. Hopefully they love them as much as I do!
