I need a Wrislet!

While I had my sewing machine out today, I decided to make myself a wristlet. I bought a yard of this fabric about a month ago. It is very pretty, don't ya think? The wristlet is smaller than it appears in the picture. It measures about 4.5" x 7.0". It took longer for me to decide whether to put the button on, than it took to make it. I just cut a pattern out of a piece of yesterday's paper. All in all it was easy and I like it. We are going out for dinner tomorrow night, I think I will use it.

I like that! It is perfect when you want to run into a store, but do not want to take in your whole purse. Or you can make evening wrislets too!

Thanks everyone for your comments. Sometimes I work for hours on something and then just hate it. This wristlet was something I thought of making during lunch. I had the fabric, the button and in a half hour it was done. Go figure!
