Wristlet Shoulder/Wrist Strap Tutorial

Spring is around the corner, that means dress up and gifts! Prom, weddings and graduation gifts, the Sew Spoiled Wristlet can be made for all of these occasions and more!  Today, I am going to share how to make a strap that is as versatile, as the wristlet is as a gift. This shoulder/wrist strap can be applied to any of your favorite small zipper pouches and wristlets. 
I adore wristlets but after a while, I get tried of keeping track of it around my wrist. 
Over the shoulder, I can wear it and not think about where it is. Sew Spoiled Wristlets would make adorable bridesmaids gifts. Or make these for a group of girls who are going to prom together in a group all in different colors to match their dresses.
Shoulder Strap
or Wristlet Strap
For this wristlet you will need to purchase the Sew Spoiled Wristlet Pattern.
Materials: Loop Fabric 2"X2", Strap Fabric 18"X 2" and 1- 1.5" Swivel Hook.
Step 1: Cut the loop and strap pieces out. Fold and iron one of the 2" short end of the strap over .25".
Step 2: Fold and iron the strap and loop in half.
Step 3: Fold and iron the two raw edges toward the center crease line.
Step 4: Fold and iron the strap in half again.
Step 5: Stitch the edge of the loop.
Step 6: Stitch the strap along both sides.
Step 7: Using the finished edge side of the strap, thread the strap through the swivel hook and sew the finished edge down onto itself.
Go through the sewing directions for making the wristlet.
Stop on Step 12 and do this instead.
Step 8: Attach the strap to the side that the zipper closes on and attach the loop to the opposite side. Before going on to Step 13 in the pattern, OPEN THE ZIPPER! 
Finish the wristlet like you would using the rest of the pattern instructions!
Now you can swing your bag on your wrist (by attaching the swivel hook to your zipper) or....
over your shoulder! (By attaching the swivel hook to the loop.)
Have fun making these wonderful wristlets for your family and friends.

Hi Leah, Would an iphone 6 fit in the wristlet? Thanks so much!

Yes, it would fit the iPhone 6. There are two sizes and this wristlet is the larger wristlet size. Thank you for your comment. :)

Sweet Coin Purse Tutorial for Teacher Gifts

This time of year is so special to me because I get to show my gratitude for all of the hard work that goes into teaching my daughters. I love to make handmade gifts and this year is no exception. Since money does not grow on trees around here, I looked at my stash (I keep my scraps in hat boxes) and tried to see what I had a lot of; small zippers, trims, Peltex strips (from making iPad cases), fabric scraps and some hardware for key fobs. So I set to work.  Materials: Plastic multipurpose 5" Zipper  Fabric Scraps Lightweight interfacing 808 Pellon Trims (We clipped key fobs with 1.5" swivel hooks onto our coin purses. There are tons of tutorials on making key fobs.) Step 1: Print out the Coin Purse Template PDF. 
Cut 2 main fabric, cut 2 lining and 2 interfacing using the template.  Optional: Cut a 2"X2" square of your choice main fabric or lining. This strip of fabric is used to clip a key fob to your coin purse later. We used a 1.5" swivel hook.

How to Line an A-Line Skirt Tutorial

After you find an A-line skirt pattern, I am using One Yard Wonders 101 template. Make a muslin of your skirt! It only takes a few minutes to make a muslin version. Just baste stitch the side seams and make adjustments for your hips. Once your template is right you can make all the skirts your heart desires, so it is important to get the perfect fit first. Now we are ready to cut the "good" fabric and sew! ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- ---------------------------------- Flip the skirt right side out and put it on!! You are done!! It is super easy and your new skirt will look store made.  Plus there is no hand stitching the lining to the main fabric.
