Passage to India Wristlet

Don't forget, this is the last day to enter my fat quarter giveaway!

Today I thought I'd share my favorite new "purse" with you ...

... my Passage to India Wristlet. I can't tell you how much I love this little bag! I have been carrying a huge bag ever since my first child was born nearly eight years ago. I'm a small person, so it's nice to carry something small for a change! :)

I'm one of those people that likes to carry along everything but the kitchen sink, "just in case." However, I've found that I don't usually use any of those specialty items in my purse.

So what I've been doing is going through my bigger purse (that's still sitting where I usually keep it) and only grabbing what I'll need for the trip I'm taking. As you can see from the picture above, this little bag can hold quite a bit. This is what I took along on my grocery trip yesterday, and I didn't miss anything.

Obviously I've been using this one, so it won't be going into the shop. However, I do have several wristlets in the works right now, so keep an eye out. :)

A Marvelous Mess

I need to make a "writlet" for my mom -- she's been wanting a smaller/lighter purse to carry with her when she shops.

We can get together sometime and make one, if you'd like!

I found that the zipper was a little more confusing with these, for some reason. Once you've done it a time or two, it's not so bad. However, if I don't pay as close attention as I should, I end up having to rip out one of the sides because I get it in wrong. :)

If you and Esther are getting together to sew I want to come, too! Probably a bit far to "run over." I love the material in this bag and the inside, too.
