sometimes simple shines

In keeping with tradition,
I wanted to make a little something to tuck her cash in
for the gal who graduated with Brandon.
But I really don't know her at all.

I decided that rather than invest several hours 
(and agonize over every decision)
on a bag that she may or may not like,
I should just whip up something quick and classy
and hope for the best.

I picked this AG print because the one thing I did know,
was that Rebecca likes aqua.

I sorta followed this tutorial,
and used interfacing instead of quilting it;
I thought the bold geometric pattern was perfect on its own.

I'm super pleased with how it turned out,
and think it may actually see more use 
than some of my more complicated other bags.

I remembered,
that sometimes simple is best.

I'm certainly not going to give up on making more personalized gifts
but these little zip bags really are a great money holder/greeting card replacement
and there will likely be many more in my future.
