Graduation gift idea

I was hemming and hawing trying to come up with a graduation gift idea, when it hit me:

"Give them what they want" graduation gift: AKA Cash

Graduation Gift Idea? Um, Cash. Duh.

I didn’t just want to hand our dear friend money, though. We have known this young lady since she was teeny tiny. She is like family to us. It felt unceremonial to just hand her a bill. So I made her a small change purse using Noodlehead’s FREE pattern. It was quick and easy, and used up some scraps (which I love).

I have made tons of zippered coin purses before, but I love Anna’s version because it adds a little more fancy to it with that handy pocket and pretty closure. BTW, no one asked me to review this pattern, I just was looking for a quick and easy (yet fancy) pattern.

I only had a few small pieces of this Pigeon Fabric, which I adore, and used here for a bowtie and here for some boxers.

The front pocket is large enough for a business card, and the whole thing can attach to some keys.

Very practical for someone who is college-bound!

These would make an excellent end- of-the-school-year gift as well! I think I will have to make a few for teachers this week.

What do YOU give graduating seniors?

  1. I love this so much! I have been wanting a quick easy project and I’m like you, I’ve made a ton of zipper pouches. I want to try this one.
