An Octopus for Mrs H.

My sweet girl, Sparkle's and the purple Octopus preps had their school 
Christmas/break-up party today!
Each Child took a plate of food and a secret 
Santa present(such a great idea). Only one school day left for 2011.

This afternoon many of the parents arrived at school early to join in the fun and watch a very sad Mrs H present all the children with special gifts (books, octopus badge & a bauble). We then(the parents) surprised and spoiled Mrs H with a book with photos of the children(more tears) and a gift voucher for a holiday.

Me, being the sweetie that I am couldn't resist 
making Mrs H, something,

So I made her this cutie...

I found the pattern at Moda Bake Shop, earlier this year and
knew it would be the perfect gift.

Sparkle's helped me chose the fabric. As a final touch I stitched a 
heart on the tush with Sparkles name embroidered on it, so 
Mrs H will always remember my sweetie.

Mrs H loved her pretty Octopus!

A lovely gray & rainy sky in Brisbane this afternoon

I even impressed my hubby, he told me I astound him...

I have orders for more of them!
