My name is Karen and I teach kids to sew. My in-home sewing school is a busy one filled with adorable children of all ages and abilitites. One never tires of the smiles and joy experienced when a student finishes a project they sewed on their own. Such a rewarding job!
One challenge I face is finding patterns written in lingo kids can follow. So, I developed Little Stitchers' Pattern Co. to solve our problem. When I'm not teaching, I'm designing and writing patterns we can use in class. They are loaded with color photographs, detailed step-by-step instructions and pattern pieces. Each pattern is kid-tested and stamp approved.
Thanks for continuing to read this & hope you enjoy our patterns!
This fun and useful wristlet pattern is used regularily in our classroom and is an all-time student favorite. The students make them for themselves as well as gifts for friends and family. For those on the go, it makes a convenient pouch to stow money, ID, and the all important lip balm. The strap fits around the wrist without it feeling cumbersome rendering the wearer hands free.
All our patterns are rated Easy, Pro or Daredevil. This pattern is rated "Pro" level because it does require the seamstress to respect a seam allowance, work with more than one pattern piece and install a zipper (it's easier than you think!).
This pattern contains 15 pages and is in pdf format. It has meticuous step-by-step instructions, pattern pieces and large colored photos containing directional arrows. It is written in sewing lingo anyone young or old can understand.
Finished dimensions are approximately 5.5" wide x 5" tall.
