Item details


Stitch up a pretty zip top wristlet with this intermediate level SEWING PATTERN.

This bag features a pleated exterior, one roomy interior pocket, and a simple knotted wristlet strap that doesn't require any special hardware.

This bag makes a nice handbag, and also works well as a cosmetics bag or lingerie bag.

The interior pocket is set into the lining fabric and has a curved opening that makes it easy to slide your hand inside. The pocket is 4.5" (12cm) deep, 9" (23cm) wide, and has a 4" (10cm) wide opening. So it's not super deep, but is wide and very roomy.

The pattern document is 13-pages: 8-pages text and color photo instructions + 5-pages of pattern pieces. Includes all pattern pieces for the main bag and cutting instructions give dimensions for you to mark out the three straight edge pieces.

Lost files can be replaced for 30-days with proof of purchase (link to your receipt, or a copy of your email receipt). I don't sell, maintain, or store these documents indefinitely so if you lose your pattern in many cases it is irreplaceable.

If you want to keep these files indefinitely--or at least longer than your next computer crash or upgrade--the best option is to have a data backup system running, or store the files online. Storing them online can be as simple as emailing them to yourself at a gmail type account, or using a service like Drop Box or Box.net.
