Sew What

Good Morning! Hope Wednesday is off to a good start for you!  Did you go over and leave a comment on Holly's blog? That little lunch box is so cute!  Anyway yesterday I decided to make something for fun. I had seen the cutest little heart wristlet over on the Sew Mama Sew Blog and I was determined to make it. Stop everything and head over to check out how totally adorable it is. Download the pattern so you can make your own.   Then when you get back, we'll resume here.

Cutting out, pretty easy.  I like my choices and I feel secure that I can just whip this out.  Of course I've forgotten that I really am not good at turning things, I never get those nice crisp edges everyone else does. 

My oh my, it's the case of the missing rick rack along the right side. And I had wanted the wrist strap on the same side as the zipper opening, but being sew-lame, I managed to get it on the opposite side when pinning it to the back piece.  Lets don't even mention the lack of a center point on those lobes. Still all in all, it's pretty cute. For my next one, I think I'll enlarge the pattern just a smidge. (candy for scale, and consolation)
Probably surprising that in spite of it's flaws,  it was still super fun to do and I feel happier having done it. It's the perfect little thing to slide my atm card and keys into  when I head into the market.  I don't think they're going to scrutinize my rick rack at the checkstand , at least I hope not! And who cares if they do?
Ok, hope you have a fun filled day!

Update:Looks like the wristlet pattern is no longer on the  Sew Mama Sew site!

Pam, you are so funny! It does look pretty darn cute! Zippers are scary business to me...something I need to get over.
Thanks for sharing friend!
