Smartphone+ Wristlet Pattern
I've been working on this pattern for a week and FINALLY got it done.
Here are all my practice wristlets. I wrote up the pattern while making one (the multi-colored one). Then made changes and made another (the blue Kaffe Fasset one). Then tweaked (the black and turquoise one). Then printed my final pattern and made one following the directions EXACTLY (the hockey one).
It has two exterior zippered pockets (one on each side).
The inside has eight pockets for ID, credit cards, loyalty cards, whatever.
This is designed for people who travel light - it's small and thin.
The outside closes with what I call a 'Round About Zipper. This was the challenge part: (1) figure out how to do it and (2) figure out how to tell YOU to do it! Doing it is easy; writing directions is not-so-easy!
The final size is 6 1/2" x 4 3/4'" x 1/2" - my big smartphone zips inside.
FYI - I made these with both TALON and YKK zippers. I prefer YKK - they are easier to open and close.
Once you get the hang of the zipper, it's quite easy! I used a lot of painter's tape to hold it together while I sewed it in. The pattern includes this zipper tutorial with full-color pictures.
