I am a pretty inexperienced sewer and usually make very simple things that I can kinda make up as I go along.  I wanted a little wristlet of my own so that I didn't have to carry my purse around on my daughters field trip.  So I looked up some tut's and ended up using the tut for a pleated pouch from Skip to My Lou http://www.skiptomylou.org/2010/04/27/pleated-pouch-tutorial/

They are both lined and the only thing I did differently from the tut was to add a strap.  I also don't have a zipper foot for my machine so sewing in the zipper was an adventure!  The red and yellow was my first attempt and the brown one was the second (I love the brown one!)

The lining...


The first attempt..




This is the first time I have ever done anything like this so comments are welcome!
