After coming across quite a few zippers at a flea market I have been going on a little wristlet making binge and heres what I have done so far

my mom said the blue ones look a bit childish, I am not too sure though



the linings are nothing special, but the gingham ones still make me smile Smiley

I loooove the first two, the flower details are so pretty and the fabric is gorgeous. I don't think I'd call them childish, I think a better word is... whimsical.

I am swooning over these.

Love love love the blue ones most of all... They are romantic and yes, whimsical. The yo-yos/suffolk puff flowers are gorgeous (I love making them while watching TV!). And I ADORE gingham. The lining does look so pretty.

The second ones are gorgeous too - great colours and funky design. The last one is pretty too.

Now I'm inspired!!

They are all great, but I don't think you can go wrong with gingham or yo-yos!  I'd snatch up one of the blue ones if I saw them in a shop or at a show.

Beautiful work! I like the blue ones (and I ain't been a child for a long time!  Grin   Embarrassed)
