One way would be to use GTK[^] but I don't know if anything using GTK could be described as a mini project. All GUI frameworks tend to be quite large and complex and C is not necessarily the easiest language for that kind of work.

I would agree... making GUIs in C usually involves using some sort of framework which is in itself, a major learning experience.

GTK+ would be a good choice, my 5.
There are more; please see my answer.

This thread might be helpful:

Like I mentioned in the comment above (in Matthew's solution), "C" and "simple GUI" aren't usually terms you'll see together but using some of the available design/widget tools, it might help the learning process.

Agree, a 5.
I also advised to rather look at C++, provided a pretty big set of choices, please see my answer.

yeah, C would definitely be the most painful way to go... there's a lot easier options for GUIs
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 12-Feb-13 14:12pm
   
Of course it's easy to find even more painful ways... :-)

Assembly? :p
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov 12-Feb-13 14:27pm
   
Assembly is by far not the worse...

It's highly recommended to use not C but rather C++. Please see my past answer:
writing c/c++ visual programs (cross-platform) with which IDE and compiler?[^].
