I began sewing as a child - my mother did tailoring and alterations. In 2004, I began designing, making, and selling purses at arts festivals - I named my business Ms. Elaineous. In 2009, I opened Sew You Can where I taught sewing lessons. I closed my studio in 2012 to focus on designing patterns. You can follow me at http://mselaineousteachessewing.blogspot.com.
And my real name isn't Elaine - she's my alter-ego!

If you are looking for the perfect wristlet to carry cash, cards, and your smartphone, then this is the project for you! Features include:
- two exterior zippered pockets
- two interior divided pockets
- interior (attached) pouch
- zippered closure
- detachable strap
This is an update from my previous smartphone wallet. After receiving feedback from friends, I made this a bit bigger and wider.
This project is designed for someone who is ready for a challenge and/or is at the intermediate/advanced level. Once you wrap your brain around the zipper, it's not that difficult to make. I've included a link to a supplemental tutorial to help you with the zipper. The technique is unique and might pose some problems.
My pattern is detailed but not wordy! I really break it down for those who might need more directions. If you are skilled, much of this is probably intuitive.
And, as with all my patterns, I find ways to make the whole sewing process easy! Enjoy! And please share your project.
On occasion, I will update the pattern to fix type-os and to clarify directions. Things make sense to me - so I rely on others to send suggestions my way! Thanks and enjoy!
