it’s all on the wrist

June 13, 2008

I love looking at a pretty handbag as much as the next lady, but I certainly don’t love lugging one all over town, so I thought I’d try to find a pattern online for a wristlet purse that was just large enough to fit the essentials. Lucky for me, I found this awesome tutorial and have been making a bunch using my piles and piles of scrap fabric! The finished wristlet can fit my credit cards, cash, car keys, a compact and lip balm. Poifect!

  2. Great, thanks for the link!

  3. toiling ant — i’ve actually attempted to make a japanese knot bag on my own before and it was a bit of a challenge without a tutorial, so thanks for the link!

  4. i am going to make approximately 80 of these during my two weeks of me (as i have dubbed my 2 weeks home & alone). so pretty!

  5. hey oona! i’m just wrapping up “one week of me” as the hubby was in london on business (coming back tonight) — hence these purses (i think i made about 15 of them) plus a bunch of basic totes and two dresses. feeling very productive!

  6. mine’s in chile on biz! expect six dozen wristlets by the end of my weeks.

    i can’t wait to see your dresses… i just bought eight at ross.

  7. ooooh. ross is dangerous!
