Did everybody see the wonderful diaper bag that Gentle Quiet made?  If not - check it out: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290378.0

It really inspired me to try to create a curved flap similar to hers.  But before I tried it on a large bag, I wanted to try it out on a smaller bag - that way if I messed it up, I wasn't wasting too much fabric.

So, I made this wristlet.  I learned that when you are making your pattern for the curve portion - over exagerate it.  On the paper, my curve looks exactly what I wanted it to, but then when I put it together, I would have liked it more curvy - like Gentle Quiet's.


I used medium fusible interfacing for this wristlet, I may consider using a more heavy interfacing and maybe even adding a layer of fusible fleece.  Can't hurt to try it right?

funny how curves never come out how you want them exactly, eh?   I have the same problem.  And I'd say it never hurts to try anything once!   I like your fabric choices,  and its a cute little design.

it's still really cute, despite the not-as-curviness! great fabric choice!
