so, i made one of those snazy wristlet things. all the ones you can buy are never big enough or functional enough for me to ever want to get one, so i made one! it's not bad for a first go, but i now have ideas of how to make my next ones better: interfacing on the exterior fabric, not the lining and it could be a little more petite.
i made it frankensteining a few different patterns and tutorials together:
walletish part: the "cash keeper" one - http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/freepatterns.htm
the grommety part: http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/03/rather_sexy_wri.html
- i like the thought of being able to switch out the wristy part for bracelets and stuff.
the pouchy part: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0
here you go:
AND i found the most bitchin lining fabric, i think it might be too much for it to be the main fabric:
i also made a walletish thing for cards and cash on one side of the lining so i wouldn't have to try and fit a wallet in one of these things:
and the wallety part in use:
so, when i make the perfect one, it will be attached to me at all the concerts i go to because it's functional, it gives me a feminine appeal (i usually just take all the crap in my pockets and carry nothing) and it gives my hands something to do.
PS - yay for my 1st ever zipper and grommet! they both work!! and the zipper thing wasn't that hard.
