Whimsical Teacup Wristlets

I found this teacup wristlet pattern in a book called, Pretty Little Purses and Pouches, and fell in love with it. Given that I'm not a quilter, the pattern was difficult for me, even with help from my mom who's a wonderful seamstress. Needless to say, I was determined to figure it out -- I really wanted to make this wristlet for my friend's birthday gift. It took two days to make my first one but the end result was well worth the time! And by the time I finished with the fifth one, I could sew without referring back to the pattern.

One of my favorite things about sewing these, is creating fun color pallets with the fabrics. A few of my friends have been recipients of these and although I haven't made one for myself yet, it is on my to do list.
These are not only whimsical but practical too!

Okay, can I just say that I love that you are now MODELING your treasures? I like seeing some "Kim" in there :). These little wristlet purses are to die for... they would make a really cute coaster too... and a coaster would probably be a lot less work because you would not need to make an inside! That is what I thought they were at first. You are awesome.
