Welcome to Threaded Lines!
You’ll love this versatile pattern. It’s a satisfying sew, has fun details, and makes a great gift! The Wristlet is perfect for running errands or using as a wallet in a larger bag (hint - it works perfect in my Sandhill Sling!). The Pouch is great for a smaller wallet or to keep small items organized - plus it's sooo cute! The Wristlet has an interior zippered pocket and card slots, and the Pouch has a pocket and one card slot to keep everything tidy and easy to find.
Skill Level: INTERMEDIATE BAG MAKER!!!!! (having knowledge of zipper pouch construction will be helpful, confidence in topstitching and working with zippers is a must!)
