Great wallet/clutch. Great tutorials on YouTube. Pattern is wonderful. Al Emmaline patterns are. Emmaline has the best hardware too. This one is addictive. Can't stop making them!
Q&A with Wendy Sue
Hi Wendy Sue - no need to respond. I read your notes above -I didn't even think to check YouTube. I see several videos out there with instructions for the wrist strap. But anyway - your bags are awesome! I'm hoping to make mine soon!

Hi Abby, I hope you have as much fun as I have making those. The first one I put on after finishing the wallet. Since then I add the little piece when I sew the big oval piece and cover together. I cut a strip 2 inches wide, iron in half lengthwise then bring each side to the center. I also put a piece of interfacing 3/8 inch inside for stability and to make it last. I used a 1/2 inch D-ring and a 1/2 inch hook for the handle.....with 12-14 inches for the handle. I also used a tip from Debby Hunker and cut a 4 inch slit in the center of the lining pice so that I could sew all the way around the body. Works great.
