Making a wristlet out of an old t-shirt

What I did:


My client's daughter was very attached to an adorable but now old, stained, and too small t-shirt.

Before: the old t-shirt, with the fabrics scraps and zipper that I would use to make the wristlet.


To get more use out of the beloved shirt, my client asked me to make a wristlet (a little purse with a wrist strap) for her daughter out of the shirt and some fabric scraps.

After: wristlet in hand, zipped up

After: more wristlet

After: top view of wristlet, with zipper closed

After: top view of wristlet, zipper open

After: the view inside the wristlet

After: wristlet hanging from my wrist via the wrist strap
