Coffee Gift Bag

Here's a gift bag I made for my son's teacher as an end of term gift, she enjoys a coffee so I popped a couple of bags of fresh, Fairtrade coffee inside.  I love this Bugaboo image and matching sentiment, I think it sums up how most teachers are feeling by the end of term!  I've coloured it, as usual, with Promarkers, and paper pieced the cup.
 The patterned papers for the piecing and bag front are Papermania, Hot Diggedy Dog, an old pack, but nice patterns and colours on these papers.
I've kept the embellishments simple, just adding a crochet lace border at the top and some layered ribbon with a matching button topped bow.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
Shopping Our Stash - #213 - Show Us Your Snark
Crafty Cardmakers - #144 - Anything But a Card
