Pattern Description:

This is a quick little wristlet purse to whip up (in almost any light to medium weight fabric) to match any party outfit. It hangs from the wrist - allowing you to eat, drink and be merry without having to juggle a hand-held bag with food, drinks and mingling with the crowd.

The instructions include a bound zipper insertion method, a strap and a simple draping method to give maximum effect with basic sewing skills.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 14cm x 23cm x 6cm (5 1/2" x 9" x 2 3/8")


  • 3 x fat quarters OR 35cm (14") medium weight, woven fabric + 20cm (8") lining fabric
  • 35cm (14") fusible interfacing (Vilene S320 is excellent, but any will do)
  • 20cm (8") calico (muslin) as a base for draping the outer fabric
  • 20cm (8") light fusible wadding (fleece) to add more structure to the purse.

You Will Also Need:

  • 1 x 20cm (8") nylon zipper
  • Matching thread
