Sew nine strips together to make a rectangle that is five squares by nine squares. Repeat this for the second panel of patchwork.
Cut two 5.5″ x 9.5″ rectangles from the lining fabric. Cut two 12″ x 2.5″ strips for the handle.
With right sides together stitch down the two long sides of the handle pieces. Turn right side out and press flat. Top stitch down each side. I twisted my handle on one side so the lining and the outer fabric met up. Pin the raw edges together and set aside.
Now instead of repeating a zipper pouch tutorial, you can go here to my Easy Zipper Pouch instructions and follow along to assemble your wristlet. There are photos for every step of the way.
And for the flower pin on the wristlet. Use some more of your scraps to make these, using my free PDF pattern here.
Have a great day!
Don’t you just love how bright and cheerful her designs are? Not to mention that this project is one fantastic scrap buster if I ever saw one! Be sure to stop by and visit Jennifer for more colorful projects!
I am so excited that tomorrow is Friday and we have Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts coming to share another fun project and favorite tool during National Sewing Month.
