Pattern Review - new Wristlet

Remember the wristlet pattern I mentioned in yesterday's post?  I just finished making my first one, and I'm really happy with the new zipper technique I learned.  That itty bitty tab on the end makes such a difference!
In fact, I'm happy with the whole thing!  I just love this fabric.  It's from Anna Griffin's Honoka Collection and it's a grayish plum color with ivory flowers and centers the color of goldenrod.  (The colors in the first picture are the most accurate.)

As usual, Erin's pattern is packed full of photos and detailed step-by-step instructions and I had no trouble following along.  Inside the wristlet, I stacked two pockets on top of each other.  The larger one for a passport and cell phone, and a smaller one on top for credit cards or ID.  With an overall size of 7.5" x 5", there's still plenty of room left over for other essentials.  This one will be listed in my Etsy shop shortly, along with a couple more next week, if all goes as planned.
So if you're looking for a good, basic wristlet pattern, this is the one.  Happy Sewing!
