The "Everything Wristlet" experience - Part One

I am a fan of the new Amy Butler book 'Style Stitches'
I already made myself the Cosmo Bag.
Now I went for the Everything Wristlet; the larger version.
I first made the exterior; this was easy. Follow the book step by step and it will work out fine.
I used fusible strong interfacing (Vilene S520)  instead of Peltex. It is much easier to handle. no fussing with keeping the Peltex in place while ironing the interfacing.
The edge stitching gives a special finish.

Also the flap is easy to make and attach to the main panel. 
I left out the handle.
The edge stitching gives the flap a beautiful finish.
Don't forget to attach the magnetic snap before you stitch the exterior and lining flaps together.
Next, I installed the zipper on the lining panel and made the card pockets.
To be continued...

  1. I started this same project before Christmas. I was rushing to get it done in time for a present, but I had to stop because I was having trouble figuring out how to piece the inside together. I think if I even had a picture of what the inside should look like I might be able to figure it out, but I just cannot seem to make sense of how to put the pockets together. I'll be checking back to see how you do on the inside. Hopefully you can help me!!
