Nina Wristlet


When I needed a small bag for a special event recently, I looked to the Nina Wristlet, a pattern by Svetlana of s.o.t.a.k handmade. Half the fun was choosing fabrics, and for the exterior, I chose my favorite floral from Anna Graham/@noodlehead531's Forage fabric. I paired that with a plaid from Carolyn Friedlander's Harriot for the lining.


The version I made was the larger of two offered in the pattern, as I particularly liked the exterior zippered pocket it offered, and wanted my phone to fit in the bag (it did!). The pattern lining includes card slots, which is handy.


The wristlet turned out to be just what I needed. Not too big, not too small, it held the necessities and was cute to boot. Plus it let me squeeze in just a little bit of sewing time in a super busy week, yet wan't too complicated. This one's definitely on my 'remake' list for sure.

  2. That fabric is divine! To me, not a bag maker, it looks very difficult! It's really pretty!

  4. I am such a fan of wristlets, and yours is wonderful. They’re the perfect size to carry essentials. A phone-sized one is a must, and one with an exterior zipper pocket is a bonus. I’m glad you found a pattern you like. You’ll probably find that even having two wristlets isn’t enough.

  5. Very nice! Your outside pocket is stitched perfectly. I need to practice more. Mine never look so professional.
