I've been a fan of Keyla Lou's wonderful patterns for a long time and I thought it was about time to finally share something with you...
I love all her patterns 'cause they're very easy to follow, the instructions are very detailed and you can make beautiful accessories by just using a tiny bit of fabric!

The first one is the Garden Party Wristlet, made out of this fabric that I've had for a while but hadn't dared cutting into yet! I needed something small enough to bring with me at shows but roomy enough to fit my glasses, wallet, a package of tissues, lip balm, mirror, keys...it's amazing what it fits!!!

The second one is the Lots of pockets tote, well, a variation...I put a zipper at the top as closure instead of the tab. The red & black leopard fabric used to be a pair of pants that I bought on Ebay, waaaaaaaay too big for me so I made a passport sleeve (also from Keyka Lou) and a small wallet (this time my own pattern) and now I have the purse to match!   Cheesy

I love your bags, the wistlet is really cute, and i looove the lots of pockets bag!
i made to last weekend. I really like the pattern. I've been thinking about making a zipper on the next one too, but I'm still a little new to sewing, so i'm not so sure how to ad it.

Putting the zipper in was a real challenge, but it worked out alright in the end, it would have been less of a headache if I had known about this tutorial though... http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/2008/08/easy-tutorial---how-to-insert-a-concealed-top-edge-bag-zipper.html
It's pretty much the same thing I did, I hope it helps you! Smiley
