Willowherb Wristlet Bat Template

Willowherb Wristlet Bat Template


This is a new template for the Willowherb Wristlet Pattern, featuring a bat!

This template includes an alternative front piece with the bat aperture, and the bat-shaped iris fold template. You will also need the Willowherb pattern, which is free, and in my shop, here:

I have included cutting files for Cricut and Scan n Cut, as a freebie. These have been tested by my test team, but I do not have a cutting machine myself, so I will not be able to offer support for these files. Please make sure that the pattern piece is 8.5" x 5.5" (22cm x 14cm) when opened in your cutting machine software. 


Both the Willowherb pattern and this alternative template are suitable for beginners, with clear step by step instructions and plenty of photos. 


There's also a group on facebook where you can get help and advice, and share your creations:


The completed size of the wristlet is 5” tall by 7¾” wide (approx. 12.7cm x 19.7cm).


Pattern pieces are provided in A4 and US Letter size, ready to print and cut out. All measurements are also included in the instructions, for those who prefer to measure and cut.
