so, i made one of those snazy wristlet things.  all the ones you can buy are never big enough or functional enough for me to ever want to get one, so i made one!  it's not bad for a first go, but i now have ideas of how to make my next ones better:  interfacing on the exterior fabric, not the lining and it could be a little more petite.  
i made it frankensteining a few different patterns and tutorials together:  
walletish part:  the "cash keeper" one - http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/freepatterns.htm
the grommety part:  http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2007/03/rather_sexy_wri.html - i like the thought of being able to switch out the wristy part for bracelets and stuff.
the pouchy part:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.0

here you go:

AND i found the most bitchin lining fabric, i think it might be too much for it to be the main fabric:

i also made a walletish thing for cards and cash on one side of the lining so i wouldn't have to try and fit a wallet in one of these things:

and the wallety part in use:

so, when i make the perfect one, it will be attached to me at all the concerts i go to because it's functional, it gives me a feminine appeal (i usually just take all the crap in my pockets and carry nothing) and it gives my hands something to do.

PS - yay for my 1st ever zipper and grommet!  they both work!!  and the zipper thing wasn't that hard.

Congrats on the zipper!! You did a nice job on this. I made a dress from the skull fabric you lined it with. Good luck with more wristlets in the future! =)
