|Five Wristlet Purses|
I am keeping two and using the rest for gifts. I got the pattern during a quilting shop-hop. The one on the bottom came in a kit. You can find it here. I liked it, but I thought I might like a little more room and added an inch to the depth. I love to use wristlets when bargain hunting and sight-seeing. Warning: they are easy to lose if not kept on your wrist! I lost one once in Taco Bell when I set it down to put a lid on my drink. Fortunately, I didn't have much in it. The worst part was that it was the best DL picture I have ever taken.
My daughter loves hers too. She chose the fat quarter two years ago, so this was unexpected but perfectly her. In my hurry to finish before she got home, I sewed the lining in upside down. The inside lining has great pockets for gift cards, credit cards, or your license.
I made the first two while visiting my parents, then came home and made three more today. They are nice and quick if you don't put the lining in upside down. I might have been even faster if I didn't have to maneuver around my protector. It was raining, and he likes to sit with me during the thunder and lightning.
Isn't that the sweetest face.
It is fun to choose the fabrics. I used fat quarters from the quilt stores I visited during the shop hop.
Lastly, this is the end of the season for my dogwood tree. Thought I would share what makes me smile. It was incredibly full this year.
