Scrap Busting - Wristlet Clutch...(sounds fancy huh?)

I've been scrap busting for a couple of weeks now and these have been my favorite project to sew.  I was happy to have enough of the dark fabric to make 4 wristlets.....yay!!  I'm only showing 2 because I had about 3 zillion pics and I didn't want to have a picture show post.  I'll post the other two at a later date.  I'm very happy with the finished product.


Here you can see some of the details of the flowers.  Which were bits left over from some of the tote bags that I have sewn. If you look closely  the centers of these flowers are a bit raised...using scrap batting that I shredded, I just stuffed it into the center and finished sewing around the flower.  Then I folded this piece in half and rubbed it together to give it the frayed edge.


Same thing on this one, stuffed the centers and sewed around or overlapped the next flower or shape.



Since I am hoarder saver of many, many things....I was able to recycle the zippers and metal loops from a book bag that I had.  Yay for Fifi!!!  If I can reuse it I will.  I also sewed in a little pocket on one side and my tag on the other side.  I say if you made it, tag it! So when your out and about, people will ask where did you get it from.  You'll say "oh I made it" and they'll be all oooohhh and ahhhh! It's nice to be noticed.


Hope you've been enjoying my scrap busting projects.  


Thanks for stopping by.  Leave comments, let me know what you think!  

Everyone have a great week!

******Yes, I know I misspelled wristlets in the title. I'm just not sure if I fix it, it will mess up all my link ups.  So it will stay as it is.
******fixed it...I hope it works.
