I have been happily working my way through projects from You Sew, Girl! Last week I finished off the wristlet.
I adore these Heather Ross prints, and the cotton/linen, slightly heavier weight fabric is just perfect for an item like this wristlet. These were leftovers from making skirts for my girls, but the wristlet will possibly be for me. There is even a little zippered pocket on the inside. That was inserted using a groovy technique that I hadn’t used before. I love learning something new!
Since I rarely go out anywhere that requires a teeny bag like a wristlet, I’ll use it for make-up. Although as my blog photos testify, I don’t really wear a lot of makeup. So I’ll probably use it for small items that need to be kept contained inside my larger bags. That said, this wristlet is not all that teeny. It’s definitely compact, but the darts shaping it mean that it is surprisingly roomy inside. You could definitely fit everything you’d need for a night out inside this wristlet, including phone and compact camera.
Now I’d better finish off making Freya her birthday dress – because her birthday is today!
