Pleated wristlet, minus the wristlet

Because it’s not as if I was going to be able to find a perfectly-matched satin-lined bag at the mall.

This is the Pleated Wristlet pattern from, minus the wristlet strap. I picked this bag pattern since its the perfect size and the diagonal pleats match the back of my dress.

Up next, a wrap made of coordinating fabric, I think.

Project #1 in my Introduction to Sewing class

My first zippered bag with boxed corners.


Before I agreed to move to Richmond, I made sure I’d be able to take sewing classes nearby.  Well, this Introduction to Sewing class at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond isn’t ideal (note the title), but it is a great facility, I like my instructor, and I get to spend three hours per week surrounded by people learning to sew.  Yes, please!
