I love going to concerts, but I hate having to carry a purse with me, especially because most of my bags are bigger or inconvenient to carry. I really want to make a reconstructed small-ish purse to take with me to concerts, just big enough to carry stuff like cash, keys, that kind of stuff. I love wristlets, so I really want to make one Smiley
I've made a lot of reconstructed purses before, but my main medium is duct tape so that's all I've worked with in a while haha. Any suggestions?

Not sure what you want here. How to make a small duct tape wristlet, or try a new craft. I believe we were talking to someobody else here about recycling leather boots (or you can make it recycled vinyl/leatherette coats or whatever). Leather's easy, you don't have to line it, you don't have to hide the cut edges. It can be simple - cut a rectangle the size to make a 3-fold (the "body" of the bag and a flap to close). You can sew up the sides (sew in a looped piece of some kind to hold a strap) or punch holes to sew it up. You need a ring and a strap, a snap closure, and boom, you're done.
