I've always loved wristlets. They're cute, they're compact, they're convenient. I've had this shape bouncing around in my mind for a while now - A small wristlet with a simple pleat and a bit of a poof at the bottom. One night this past week, I couldn't sleep. I got out my sketchbook and I drew it up. Finally! So then I took to the challenge of actually making the bag.
So I was at the store with my niece last weekend picking out some fabric. She spotted this pink bit and thought it was super cool. She's three and it was only $1.24 for a remnant, so I got it. Once I saw it next to the bright blue remnant I got, I knew these fabrics would be perfect for the first try at my design!
I LOVE how it turned out!! For my first time drafting up a pattern, I am so proud!! I had to tell whoever would listen about it... My Mom, my old roommate, my best friend... Which led to a few requests!
So after boasting about how awesome my first wristlet of this style was, my best friend Liz requested a blue one. So who could turn down their best friend since first grade? Besides, this one went a lot quicker than the first.
I'll probably drop this off sometime Monday. I hope she likes it!
My old roomie Casey also requested a red one, so I'll get on that tomorrow.
The pink one has a special purpose, however. *sniff sniff* Do I smell a giveaway in the near future??? As in... Right now?!
