embellished felt clutch

I made this clutch for a friend. She creates jewelry and orders a lot of her supplies online and she'd just received a bag full of pink roses when the story of this clutch started.. I'm not exactly sure what the flowers are make of, as they are heavier than plastic, but in any case, she gave me one and challenged me to incorporate it in one of my sewing projects.

Challenge accepted.

Spring napkin rings

A while ago a friend gave me a bag of small ribbon flowers in assorted colors. For a while I had no idea what to use them for - hair clips for my daughter? embellishments on sewing projects? greeting cards? 

Maybe I will still get to all of those - because, really, there are a lot of flowers on that bag - but right now I made spring napkin rings.

Welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #115!

Hello, and welcome! I hope you've all had a lovely weekend and I'm so glad you could join us for The Really Crafty Link Party #115!

Come and share all your posts and try to visit at least a couple of other links and share on social media - the more, the merrier.

The really crafty link party, keeping it real, craft blog

As usual, the linkup will be open until next Thursday and I will be posting the features on Friday, April 20th.

Did you miss last week's amazing features? Click the image below to check them out:

The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to add as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome too!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once.You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!

Instructions: Select all code above, copy it and paste it inside your blog post as HTML

There are no thumbnails in the party, so in the "name" field of the linky make sure you add an interesting title/description to your post. If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

Thank you again for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

When you linkup, your e-mail will be added to The Really Crafty Link Party mailing list and you will receive one (and only one) e-mail each week to let you know when the party goes live. All mail addresses are kept strictly confidential. You can unsubscribe at any time by replying to the e-mail.

DIY Tulle gift bags

When I wrap gifts I try as much as possible to use fabric bags. They are cute, ecological and the recipient can always re-use them to store other things. For these particular gifts (a set of chocolates for Easter, from a couple of weeks ago) I decided to change a bit the look of my gift bags and make them out of tulle.

Tulle gift bags turn out really nice, and there are zillions of ways to re-use them.

Spring bag set

I made this spring bag set for my mother's birthday last week. As I was pressed for time and trying to finish it at the last minute, I didn't take a lot of photos of the work in progress, so there isn't s a specific tutorial for this bag set - however, a combination of several tutorials I've posted here over the years will give you an idea of how I made it.

Spring bag set

The set is composed of three pieces - the bag itself, a small zippered pouch and a key chain with my mother's initials embroidered.
