??? ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
This adorable little bag can be used as a wristlet, clutch, or mini-purse, depending on how the adjustable strap is positioned. The pleated front gives it a stylish look, while the cash, credit card, and lined coin pocket make it useful.

These easy instructions are great for those with intermediate to advanced sewing skills. I have provided 38 pictures to illustrate the simple step-by-step instructions in this ebook. The most challenging thing about this project is installing the two zippers. It really isn't hard, but I was intimidated by zippers for years until I started designing this pattern - this is a great project to learn two different techniques! I have included instructions for use with a rotary cutter, or you can use the included pattern if you prefer.

Here's what some people are saying about the Aivilo Convertible Wristlet instructions:
~My bag is made!!!! It is so cute! I really like the design and all the details. The way you did the zippers is genius!
~Easy to follow instructions for a truly lovely bag. I am excited to use mine tomorrow!!!!
