Xmas Sewing: wristlet bags

I haven't done much Christmas sewing this year but I did make these 2 bags on the weekend to add to gifts for friends.

The pattern is from dog under my desk and its the essential wristlet. I made her circle pouches last Christmas.

The ninja fabric is Robert Kaufmann and was left over from the Mini ninja quilt.

This fabric was a fat quarter I picked up at a garage sale a couple of years ago and the lining is a Joel Dewberry fabric left over from this quilt

The little swivel clips I picked up from either ebay or etsy in a bulk lot last year, it's nice to finally use them.
I couldn't find the recommended interfacing locally so used a fusible fleece on the outer and a Pellon fusible on the lining.
Next time I make these I will cut a little out of the lining at the base as it doesn't fit as smooth as I'd like inside but otherwise I'm really happy with them.


  1. These are fabulous! I bought this pattern about 2months ago thinking I'd make them as teacher gifts.then I chickened out & made something else instead. I've only ever seen in 2 zippers in my life! Yours are great. Will remember what you said about the interfacing when I get around to making year! Lee ��
