Handmade Monday #50

Hi folks and welcome to another Handmade Monday link up. 
We had quite a few new bloggers joining us last week for the first time, so if you are a newbie here - WELCOME. If you're not a newbie (and oldbie???!) - you're welcome too!! 
Handmade Monday is our weekly craft link up, a chance to share our makes, bakes and other handmade craft ideas and find some new inspiration.

How was everyone's week? the big news in our house was that it was our middle son's graduation on Saturday. Actually, I say middle son but then that sounds like we have 3 sons. Oldest son/middle child graduated on Saturday, lots of pomp and ceremony, photo taking and feeling ridiculously proud!

Now let's look at the features from last weeks Handmade Monday:
These little zipper pouches by ChezVies are so pretty and there are links to a couple of different patterns. Elvira also has a great idea for storing scraps of interfacing.

Coloured Buttons has a very simple tutorial for this sweet little felt leaf bag. Perfect for collecting 'stuff' on a nature walk. 

Congratulations to you both,  here is a "Yay! I was featured" button for your blog.
