I guess I’m a sucker for cute little purse patterns. (OK, I’m a sucker for cute patterns, period.) Which is why I couldn’t resist when I saw this sweet little bag from Keyka Lou.
And then it took me three weeks to finish it.
This was not the fault of the pattern. Rather, it was the fault of the sewer. Or, better stated, the fault of the shopper who could not find the darned clasp for finishing the strap. Oh, and after they arrived, I managed to misplace them for another three days, just so I couldn’t
I love the shape of the wristlet and the size is just perfect. I lined it with the same Heather Bailey fabric that I used with the Dena Designs fabric on a dress I made Miss L last month. (It remains one of my favorite fabric combinations.)
The wristlet sews up pretty quickly — provided you have all the needed hardware — and I definitely see more of these in my future. I’m thinking it’s going to be a wristlet-heavy Christmas this year, since I have so many folks on my list who need a little something handmade under the tree.
