Willowherb Wristlet Pattern

Willowherb Wristlet Pattern


The Willowherb Wristlet Pattern: This is a quick and easy wristlet which incorporates the iris-fold technique, to complement my Meadowsweet Shoulder Bag pattern.  The spiral can be created using jelly roll strips, ribbon or any fabric cut into strips. The instructions also include an alternative method, to showcase patterned fabric or a panel.


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.
