this is my first wristlet, and my first project with pleats.  i got the fabric a few years ago with the intent to make a memory board (which is still only 75% complete), but i love it and wanted something i could take out of the house with me.

it was pretty easy, but very time consuming, making all the parallel folds.  i used a zipper that was too short, so i ended up hand sewing the entire border on by hand, which i think adds some character (but really it was because i was too lazy/poor to drive all the way to the store to get a longer one).  i sewed the pleats down on the bottom, so they wouldn't unfold with use.  i went a little overboard to make it durable--both the exterior and the lining have french seams.

i've been using it for about 2 weeks, and i really love the freedom from carrying around a big purse.

without further ado....

and the inside, with my favorite lip moisturizer as a size comparison (same size as a chap stick):

let me know what you think!
