Instead of lugging a purse, sometimes all I really need is my phone, ID, cash and favourite tube of lip balm Roll Eyes
I've been searching for suitable wristlets to purchase...ones which are large enough to accommodate the size of my phone.
Nope, no luck.  On to Plan B! 
After digging through my stash of fabric scraps and drafting a couple of patterns, I came up with two wristlets.

The first one has a strap that is attached to a swivel hook.  The swivel hook clips onto the split key ring that is connected to the main body of the wristlet. 
In a pinch, I can remove the strap and throw the zip pouch into my regular purse.



The second one has a zip gusset in the back for my phone (for easy access). 
It is roomier than the first wristlet and can hold a few more items (if I need them). 



Thanks for checking them out Cheesy

They are very nicely done.  I love when you can't find something you want and you decide to just make it yourself!

Nicely done! I like the idea of a wristlet that you can just toss into your purse if need be, and be off!
