This dainty lace wristlet is perfect for carrying valuables during the wedding (especially for a bride who loves to Facebook and Tweet!), and is still a practical accessory after the wedding!

What you need

White fabric
7” zipper

Instructions

Start by downloading the pattern here: Dainty Lace Wristlet Pattern.

002

To make the handle strap for the wristlet, cut a 14” strip of the lace trim. Fold it into half or 3 times (depending on how narrow you want it to be).

003

Stitch it down from the beginning to the end of the strap.

004

Cut 4 pieces of fabric of the PDF pattern; 2 as the main fabric, and the other 2 as the lining.

Sew lace trim onto 2 of the pieces individually.

006  005

Cover the whole 2 pieces in lace, letting the edges of the lace hang slightly longer than the fabric. This will be your outer piece.

007

Take 1 laced outer piece and place a lining piece onto it, wrong sides facing.

008

Pin the pieces together.

009

Serge all around the edges, cutting away any excess lace. Repeat for the other 2 pieces.

010

Position the zipper with the zipper head on the left side, right side up. Place 1 of the piece right side down onto the edge of the zipper.  Pin and stitch.

011

This is what you will have now.

012

Now place the other piece right side down onto the zipper, aligning it with the other piece. Pin and stitch.

013

Pull the zipper tab towards the center of the wristlet to leave an opening to turn the bag inside out later.

014

Fold the strap you made earlier into half, and pin the raw edges to the side of the wristlet, just below the zipper.

015

Pin both pieces together right sides facing, and sew 1cm from the edges.

016

Trim away the excess zipper edges.

017

Turn the bag inside out through the zipper opening.

Enjoy your dainty lace wristlet!
