Book felt gift box

If you've been reading this blog for a while you already know I always prefer re-usable gift wrap alternatives. Well, this time I decided to create a sort of gift box for a book. Made of felt, of course.

Because we are traveling this week my kids will miss not one but three birthday parties - seriously, their social life is way busier than mine! As we got the invitations, I still wanted to send gifts and I needed to leave everything prepared beforehand, so I was racing against time to get the gifts wrapped and read to go.

Welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #116!

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 #116!

This week our family is traveling abroad and if everything goes well we won't be back home before Wednesday evening. While I usually make a point of commenting on everyone's posts, this week it may not be realistic for me to promise you to do so. I will still be reading everything you add to the party and I will be posting the features on Friday as usual.

In the meantime. 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.

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!

DIY Felt eyeglasses case

This padded felt eyeglasses case was made at the request of a friend. She gave me the approximate measures she wanted but gave me total freedom with respect to materials and colors. Because I love working with felt, it was a an easy choice for me. And because I know she loves everything Irish, I managed to find a piece of Irish green felt in my stash and decided it was just perfect.

Because I wanted the glasses case to be padded to offer more protection, I added lining and batting.

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.
