If you're in the mood for some spring-themed crafting, here are lots of free tutorials to keep you busy...

Make a butterfly mobile from felt + felt beads, or brightly coloured card:

Use card to make butterfly napkin rings and other pretty accessories for a spring tea party:

Make a statement with big butterfly brooches, embellished with embroidery, sequins or mini buttons...

Or use felt and pairs of matching buttons to make these simple butterfly brooches:

Decorate with doilies and butterfly shapes cut from sugar paper - make a big butterfly curtain like mine, or a smaller spring mobile. Doilies and butterflies are also a great combo for spring gift wrapping.

Sew a folk-inspired floral brooch from felt and fabric:

 Use felt, pretty washi tape and a mini button to make a sweet and simple flower card:

 Stitch a flower in bright spring colours using this flower embroidery pattern:

Make a leafy felt brooch to pin to your jacket or spring sweater:

Wish someone luck with a felt four-leaf clover:

You could also make bunnies from card, with this bunny gift box tutorial I designed for Tesco Living.

If you're stuck indoors because of spring showers, why not make a cute raincloud mobile? Or a cloud brooch!

If you've got a friend who's feeling under the weather thanks to a spring cold, make them a card to say "get well soon"...

... and if you really want to cheer them up, make them a rainbow box filled with sunshine!

And last but by no means least, sew Mr & Mrs blackbird from felt - these would make cute brooches or little ornaments:
