16 Clematis Wristlets plus 2 Smaller Zippered Pouches

I made 16 Clematis Wristlets, a free pattern by Blue Calla Designs; plus 2 smaller zippered pouches too. I am going to do only one craft show in November and I hope to sell these there. Whatever doesn't sell there will go to a gift shop. If you see something here you would like to buy please email me asap before it gets sold.

I loved putting together the fabrics for all these bags. A lot of the fabrics I used came from my scrap bags too. Some I only had enough to make the bottom of the bag and maybe the wrist strap too. It was fun coordinating the fabric colors and seeing how much I could use up from my scraps. But of course if I cut larger fabric for linings, there begins the leftovers of those that were added to the scrap bags and so on and on it goes, never ending scraps! Well I do love using the scraps first.

Clematis #1 is a Route 66 fabric print of road signs and gas station signs (remember when they were called service stations?)

Clematis #1 with yellow zipper and red accent fabric. This one has sold!

Clematis #1 again with a smaller non- Clematis bag. I only had a bit of the fabric left, so I made a smaller Route 66 sign fabric bag.

Clematis #2 is denim with a cowboy boot and hat fabric. This one has sold!

Look I even had a cowboy boot charm to add to the zipper pull.

Clematis #3 is a hot air balloon fabric print.

This is the back of Clematis #4, since the print looks a bit different on the back side I thought I would show it too.

  1. I bow to your Clematis-ness, wooooohoooooooooo - those bags are GREAT! I love the fabric combos and the zipper pulls and the (leather?) tags - you put such care and thought into your bags! Your hardware is really elegant too :)

  2. I'm going to try the clematis next. I just finished 8 lipsense zippered bags with no time to blog to enter them in bag it. Might have to IG those.
    I also might have to go the 'set a timer for 45 minutes so I will sew' method of craziness.
    Sandra (sandra sews) and Lisa (IG) guilted me into sorting my scraps which allowed me to whip out four clothesline bowls for gifts.
    I also sewed some scrappy qayg panels for zippered bags but stalled due to design issues. 1. Make essential oil bags. 2. Just make a darn zippy bag. 3. Use them as a panel for a tote bag. 4. Not enough mental energy time.
    Congrats on making 16 different clematis's. Goid luck on your show!

  3. Enjoyed looking at these - you've been busy! I have a question about how you organize your extensive fabric stash. Do you have them categorized like in a library (since you have library experience) so that you can see them all in a glance?

  4. those wristlets are adorable, they really show off the fabrics and they are so practical. I know these will sell if I could I would buy all of them.

  5. These are just wonderful - great fabric choices. Thanks for linking up to the Elm Street Quilts Bag It event.
