I wasn't sure what to make for Ana's teacher assistant as an end-of-the-year gift. I asked Ana exactly what the assistant's job was, and she said, "It is her job to watch the kids and make sure they're not hiding anywhere. If they are, she has to find them... We should give her a magnifying glass!" So, that is what we did.
But, I wanted to put it inside something lovely that also might be memorable. Since the kindergarten class was called the "Cherry Blossoms", I was thrilled to find a cherry print fabric to use to make a drawstring bag. Ana fingerknitted a chain of yarn to be used as the drawstring.
I started by cutting two long rectangles, and stitching the sides together (wrong side out), making two shorter rectangles.
