hands off that wristlet

Yet another awesome tutorial find on Craftster... A few weeks ago, we were going to visit good friends of ours who moved out of state and I wanted to bring a little gift. I gave this wristlet tutorial a try a while ago and I remembered that Logan was itching for one. I altered the basic instructions of the tutorial a bit by adding a silver bangle and changing the dimensions.


I think it came out pretty swell. It was only my second try with a zipper and the way this tut is written, it actually makes sewing a zipper relatively easy. If you're scared of zippers (like I was), try this to calm your fears and create something wicked cute to boot! Here is Logan and her husband, Jim (all happy and excited for our impending Cracker Barrel breakfast).

Aren't they cute? I loved the way the wristlet came out... I almost didn't want to give it away, but she's worth it. :o)

This is really cute. I signed up for craftster the other day, because I saw all the cool stuff you were making. I am having a hard time finding projects with instructions though. Where do I have to go to find them? Great job again

Hey Shannon, Craftster can be a little cumbersome to navigate until you get used to it. If you go to a main category (like "Purses, Bag, & Wallets), a lot of the time you'll find a whole list of tuturials right at the top (like for this one - "Ultimate Purse, Bags, & Wallets Tutorials list! Over 125 tutorials!). "Completed Projects" under each main heading also tend to come with instructions as well. And keep in mind, there's always the search tool. Have fun noodling around! It's really easy to get sucked in... there's so much there!
