Ever get ambitious and think you are going to make tons of one style of bag so you cut up all your material into a specific pattern only to realize months later that you are never going to use it for the original said pattern?...Ya.  I did that.  I have a bunch of material all cut very small.  I don't want to use them for my original idea and had to figure what to do. 

(You see, I have set a limit for myself recently...I can't buy any more material until I use up what I have... Creates a challenge.)

So, I decided to try to make a wristlet, or what I like to call a pouchlet... aka tiny purse.  I think it came out pretty good.  There are four pockets... well... two sections and two pockets for possible a tiny box of raisins.  I hope you like it...

That's great. 

I love the idea of not buying anything new until you use what you have.  It could really create a challenge.

Thanks!  I'll try to make another and include how I did it.  It is amazing how old material can get a second life.

I love this! The funky fabric is fantastic, and the ribbon used as a strap adds a nice touch.

And also... Every wristlet/pouchlet should have a raisin box pocket.♥
