My first go at wristlets. I love pairing different fabrics together so these have been fun to play with.


Brown corduroy and vintage floral cotton. I can't get enough of little florals.


I block printed the arrow pattern with a lino block. Mint green is the best.


Made with vintage mushroom ribbon. I had been waiting to use the bright lining floral forever and finally found the right project!


Crazy jungle-y floral.

All of the little buttons on the handles are pretty old, I think. I found a bunch at this junk store and had to clean them, but they look real classy now! Thanks for looking  Smiley

These are adorable!  I love the last one the best.  I also really like the lining fabric on the one with the mushroom ribbon.

When in doubt, use more glue!

These look great! Yay for junk shop buttons. I like the piping on the last one, but the colors on the first one are my fave.

Fantistic--I do like the buttons a lot, and all fabrics are beautiful!  Did you use a pattern or just make it up?

Thanks for the kind words, you guys. I use this pattern that I made when I was in, like, 7th grade. I'm 22 now! I recently started sewing again in the past few months, so I dug up all my old stuff and tweaked them a little.

these are great, I love the fabric combos..

what impresses me most is how neat the ends of the zips are. Any tips to share? Know of any tutes?..I make a ton of zippered pouches but cannot get the ends of the zips tucked nicely away like you do. Obviously my technique is wrong, Part of the problem is that I use up old zips, which are invariably too long, so I have to cut them, but that still should allow me to make them as neat as yours..help?

These are beautiful.  Love the use of the buttons.  I'm a button-freak too.    Can you share your pattern for these?  Or at least some clues on how you did the zippers?

I just got a sewing machine for Christmas this year and would love to give this a try.  I haven't sewn anything since the 7th grade and I'm not even going to tell you how long ago that was...but I really like the bags design and construction.  Very good.
