It's a good job I married him....
Can it really be 14 years ago? Where does time go?
Today is our wedding anniversary. He very helpfully pointed out yesterday that I could pinch the transformer from the coffee machine if I wanted to sew (and as long as no-one needed a coffee) ... I knew there was a reason I married him!!
Anyway, I spent a happy few hours yesterday whipping up this little wristlet. The fabric I've used is coincidentally from my wedding outfit - I only had the smallest piece of this patterned cream silk that was used for my waistcoat and this just happened to be enough for the overlay on the front of the bag - the rest (which you can't see in the photo above!) is from the plain cream silk used in my skirt and train. This wristlet would have come in handy on the day!
I made this to test out a new pattern from Nicole Mallalieu. It was really, really fun to make and I can see me making more, in different fabrics in the future.
