Grad gifts


Graduation season is wrapping up and I've got a few gifts to show.

 They're in the mail right now.

Making their way to a high school graduate who is a family friend.

So if you think this might be you, stop reading here......you know who you are!








This Triple-Zip Pouch that I made for her, is from a tutorial I ran across on Debbie's blog, A Quilter's Table.

The fabrics I used are pretty close to the colors of the college our friend will be attending in the fall. 

I love that there are three separate sections in this bag. I matched the lining of each section with the fabric below the zipper, but it would be fun to mix it up too.

Debbie had a Triple-Zip Along on her blog earlier in the year, but I didn't know it was going on until it was too late.

I added the button to my side bar anyway, as inspiration and to remind me to make some of these cute bags during the year and this was the perfect opportunity!

If you click on the link you will see lots of adorable bags that were made during her Triple-Zip Along.

My graduate friend can toss this in her backpack or purse and keep a few small school necessities organized and easy to find!






A pillowcase in her school colors is on the way too.

Hopefully a fun addition to her college dorm!

I think handmade is always best and very much appreciates. Those are both terrific and useful gifts.
