This is only my second purse & first wristlet, so go easy on me!
For the purse, I used lee's Zip Top Tote tutorial
, but I did not add a zipper or any type of closure to the top. I also modified the fabric dimensions so that it would be a smaller purse, rather than a tote. I put in lots of pockets to hold my cell phone, lipsticks, tissues, etc. I just love this bag and have used it every day! I followed Javajem's tutorial
for the wristlet. My mom and I walk at the mall 3 times a week and we have needed something to carry a little bit of cash, our keys and maybe a credit card. I made this wristlet smaller than Javajem's and it fits everything just right. I also figure that, if necessary, I can hook my key ring to the tab on the end that was originally made to be a zipper pull. I used the wristlet for the first time today and it is perfect for walking!
I made the wallet around Christmas time when I made several for friends, using happyfrog's slotted wallet tutorial
. Hopefully you can see it in the group shot. I thought I had taken pics of it when I made it, but I didn't. You can see the others I made in this post
to get a close up. I am so happy to be sewing again now that we've settled into our new home!!
