14 Lovely Wristlet Patterns & Tutorials: {Sewing}

Here’s a nice bunch of assorted wristlets to make, some are fairly simple in design while others offer a few extra features. These are nice little purses (or pouches) to take along on errands where bulky purses and totes aren’t needed, just tuck in a bit of cash, your cards, even keys and you’re good to go. All but one are zipped making this a great little project to practice sewing in zippers. A few of these have been featured on Tipnut before but I’ve added them here for one handy project sheet. Enjoy!
