Sandi Marshall designed this cute apple chart, which incorporates a heart motif. You could use this chart to design a variety of teacher gifts.
One possible idea for using this chart: crochet a project in a single color of afghan stitch, and then cross stitch this design onto it. This would be a cute way to decorate an afghan stitch potholder, for example.
Crocheted bookmarks make lovely teacher gifts. A teacher can never have too many bookmarks, and this pretty thread crochet bookmark is a fabulous choice. It is made using size 10 crochet cotton. Any teacher is sure to appreciate such a thoughtful gift.
