I wanted to make something special for my friends in England and came up with this simple bow clutch. I have seen them around on different blogs, but designed my own version. It took a couple of takes to get the proportions perfect and voila! I even had the zippers and fabric on hand!

I love sewing for spring and summer birthdays! Everything is so colorful! I have included ages with each gift and who it was for. You can use them for your own siblings or friends! I either used tutorials online, or made up my own designs.

This was for my sister - age 26 :)
I enlarged the felt flowers quite a lot to take up more space for an adult size
head vs. a child's head. And I added a few mini Moleskines to the card too!
