Wristlet

I made this wristlet on the weekend with the white fabric I printed on. I made the pattern up as I went along, all I knew was I wanted to make little creases in the white fabric and then I figured I would just sew the rest of it like my other pouches. It all worked out okay, although I almost forgot to sew in the strap, which is pretty necessary. I like the four different shades of blue in the print, zip, band and lining. It is also a little bigger than I imagined, but not too big. I think it would hold quite a bit of stuff before it gets to bursting point. I love the white and blue striped fabric I used for the lining. It was in the bargain section of Spotlight because I think they thought "nautical" was out of fashion although linen was also about 80%. I think they must have left the work experience kid in charge of markdowns that day.
