Wrist Wallet Tutorial

This is one of my favorite items. I make a new one for the kiddo to fit her different moods. She likes to go skating and carrying a purse or wallet is not always the safest way to carry money for snacks. A wrist wallet works great for lunch money at school. My biggest tip is to make sure you use a good Velcro or snaps for the closure.

Cut the interfacing to a little larger that the zipper. Iron the interfacing in place a minimum of 1″ from the edge.

Find and mark your center points. Also mark a 1″ rectangle for stitching purposes.

Cut the center horizontal line and cut at an angle from the center line to each corner. Turn right side out through the opening.

Iron the sipper opening flat. This will take a little while to get just right. Make sure the edges are smooth.

Stitch the zipper in place. I usually stitch around the zipper twice for security.

Layer the second set of inner and outer fabric. Pin and sew it in place. Sew all the way around at least 1/2″ from the edge.

Turn the bag out through the zipper opening. Iron the edges flat.

Position the Velcro with the soft side facing the wrist. I like to use stitch on Velcro because the sticky kind is harder to stitch through. I used stick on for this project because I had it on hand.

The Kiddo loves it.

She played around with the new size and found she can fit her phone in the cuff. I would recommend positioning the zipper in the center of the long side for a cell phone pocket. You also have to be careful to not scratch the screen on the zipper.
