Introduction

This year our family had 6 teachers we wanted to thank – all of whom have helped our children in profound and wonderful ways. And, like most families, we’re on a budget. So for our special teachers this year, I came up with the Planting Seeds Flower Pot Cozy and printable card!

This really is a fantastic teacher gift for those on a budget. For each gift, I spent as follows:

Cotton Yarn: $0.90
Flower pot: $0.78
Begonia (sold in an 8 pack for $3.33): $0.42
Potting Soil: approximately $0.20
Card: a few cents for printer ink and paper

TOTAL: less than $2.50 each!

But as with all handmade things, it’s more than it’s parts. Fill the card with thanks and it’ll be a lovely gift that lasts all summer long!

Materials List

  • US – H, 5.00mm hook
  • 50 yards total worsted weight yarn in 3 colors (Lily Sugar’n Cream and Spinrite Peaches & Creme shown)
  • 4.25″ terra cotta flower pot
  • Put a Bird On It Applique (optional)
