Hello there! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! It’s finally sunny in CNY after a freezing rain and sights of our first snow flurries yesterday. The boys are so excited about the snow season starting, but I’m not quite on board!
As I promised last week, I have a FREE sewing pattern to share with you today! I am calling it The GameDay Wristlet. This is a very easy pattern to sew up and appropriate for a confident beginner. I made this pattern in under 2 hours and the best part is that there are no fancy pattern pieces to cut out. Just a few rectangles!
I’ve had this pattern in a to-do-bin packed away for some time. I guess I wasn’t ready to finish it yet, but a new phone purchase had me getting the bin out to finish it. A few more samples later and a typed up pattern, and here we are! There are two pockets in this wristlet, with the front designed to be a bit roomier.
The GameDay Wristlet is great on those days when you have kids games or practice and you don’t want a bag with you. Roomy enough for a large smartphone, money and your ID, the removable swivel snap easily attaches to your car keys or even a belt loop!
There are many ways you can customize The GameDay Wristlet, but to create mine here is a list of the materials I used:
1/4yd exterior – home decor OR quilting weight cotton or linen/blend fabric
1/4yd interior – home decor OR quilting weight cotton or linen/blend fabric
1/2yd Pocket Fabric ( 1/4yd & 1/4yd if choosing two different pocket fabric)
1/2 yd of Pellon Interfacing SF101 * for interior main, and pocket pieces*
1/4 yd Fusible Fleece *exterior main*
1/2” magnetic snap or 1” x 3/4” sew-in velcro *for closure*
3/4” metal D-ring
3/4” metal swivel hook
I gave one of my GameDay Wristlets a workout the other week and took it to the FSU-vs-Syracuse football game. I was able to clip it on one of my belt loops so I had both hands free to cheer *or yell*! Worked perfectly.
