I love making shaped pouches. That's why I'm partly so obsessed with working with felt (it has more stability and I can be more creative with it). But this is not a felt awesomeness project. This is just plain sewing awesomeness. I made this saucy red lips wristlet for a 16 year old after I looked through Pinterest for inspiration. Originally, I wanted to make her a make up bag to house the Victoria Secret's lotion and body spray I bought as part of her birthday gift. But I couldn't find the "right one' to make. Don't get me wrong....I pinned a lot of the make up bags I saw for me. This kid has her own style, so not just any type of bag will do. That is until I saw this pin and I knew....*this* was the one (if only finding m soulmate would be just as easy :)
I drew out a template, used red vinyl and a red zipper I already had and went to town. Less than an hour later, the lips were done. I didn't add a lining to it because
The wristlet can be used to hold makeup or as a clutch purse. Definitely roomy enough to hold at least a cell phone, lipstick, keys and the cash and card stash.
