I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for Caroline at Trillium Design.
Her Cell Phone Wristlet was super fun to make! And I finished just in time to take it to a water park birthday party.
Once I got the pieces cut and ready, it took me almost exactly 2 hours start to finish.
Love that it has a spot for some money and credit cards.
Even that pocket is lined! And the zipper bit is quite easy, if you're new to that kind of thing.
That's the back open - look at all those Park Slope pebbles.
I'm getting tot he end of my pieces of it. I was so brave to cut into it!
My little camera also fits inside.
So lots of uses for this in the summer when I don't want to carry much with me.
One last look at the fun hardware and pretty Park Slope. Pre-disaster.
I'm super bummed. I was using it when making a stop at an ice cream shop. They were having a bad day I think....the double dark chocolate cone I got was kind of mushy and blopped right over on me when she handed it across the counter. I instinctively tried to catch the ice cream ball, which ended up mushing into the zipper and all over my little wristlet.
My Park Slope!!
I gave it a soak and wash and it seemed like the chocolate came out. But it's still stained in the zipper. Also, didn't want to dry it and make it all lumpy, so I set it out to air dry. That led to the teal print lining bleeding to the front over the pebbles. I should have known how dangerous it is to leave wet fabric touching each other.
So, besides the fabric bleeding caution, I have a dream sewing machine buying cautionary tale to add in a couple of days.
