I designed this wristlet before a girl’s weekend trip to Canada, where I knew I would need to have my passport, hotel room key and phone on me at all times, even when just in the hotel. Since my passport doesn’t fit in my wallet, that meant carrying a purse everywhere.

I ended up using my wristlet all the time after my trip, mostly as my wallet. If you’re like me and carry a huge tote everywhere, it’s nice to just pull out the wristlet for a quick trip into the store.

I spent months getting the corners *just right* so that you too can have a perfect zippered wristlet. This pattern will teach you, step by step, with photos, how to fearlessly install the zipper. And once you learn the technique you can apply it to any other bag that needs a top zip. They will sew up quickly and I promise you’ll love the result. Learn how to install the perfect zipper and be ready to amaze your friends when they ask where you bought your wristlet!
