Small in size, but just right for a cell phone, some make-up and a few dollars - and Crazy Quilting!

The dress was navy and the shoes silver.  The Prom Purse tied them together:

This is lovely, Susan.  Beautiful work!  What a clever design for the bag, too.

This is beautiful Susan, and just a perfect size to keep on your wrist as you get up to dance. I like the way it folds over to create a closure. Did you design the pattern as well?

Thank you all for the kind comments on the wristlet.  The Crazy Quilting provides a wonderful creativity outlet...and the small size ensures tedium never occurs!

The final wristlet design is my own..I made a number of prototypes before I settled on the final opening and wrist strap sizes.

Susan, beautiful.  I frequently make little bags/purses out of odd silks and trims (sometimes batiks) but have never tried the closure you have.  It is a wonderful idea.  I went to your site and agree that at 15, I would not have understood the importance of such a bag.  Your daughter is a very lucky young lady to have a Mom who would drop things and work on this.

Cudos for doing this from your stash.  You have intrigued me and challenged my design skills.  If I don't draw something to my satisfaction in the first couple tries, I will go to the Vogue pattern you recommended.  I hate to buy patterns for the price they charge but will resort to that if needed.

Thanks again for the inspiration.  Love your "destashification" projects. (my family encourages me to try as many of these as time allows--definitely have a stash larger than I will use within my life expectancy and no daughters to pass it on to)

Many thanks for the wonderful and encouraging comments!

I am working on another purse - this time a full size for myself.  I keep hitting "bumps" - and the encouraging comments keep me going!

Thanks again.
