DIY Grad Gifts and MORE Signs

I was inspired by this darling pouch for my lastest project. 
Its a gift for my cousin that recently graduated from 8th Grade.

Here is what you need to get started.

I sewed on my bunting pieces on the cover piece. 
Sew your sleeves with the added pockets and turn them right side.  
Top stich along side edges of sleeves and place on top of back piece. 
Pin your sleeves to back piece and then place right sides together
Sew along edges and leave a small opening to flip right side.

Sew close your opening and slide over your notebook.

I sewed in a rubber band and added a button for closure.
I also added her name to the bunting.

Here is another Sign that Em just did!!!

She also turned this garage sale find into a cool gift for the grad too!


  1. Great grad gift ideas!! Now if only I was better with my sewing machine..... :) Super cute, girls!

  2. I am so happy that my little bag could inspire something so beautiful! I love your bunting notebook! - Suzanne

  3. I LOVE the "you are my sunshine" sign. Would love to see a tutorial!

  4. I love the pennant pouch. It gives me an idea on how to use up scraps in fabric stash.
