Bought the chain and a matching ribbon it was a matter of minutes to get it done.
I opted for the purse version after all. The reason is, as Emmy Jay noted - thanks for all the comments by the way! - the possibility of spilling things due to the size of the side openings. If I want to make a wristlet next time I will certainly add a zipper. And, of course, I should also use some batting or stiffer fabric to give more body to the bag. The interfacing I used proved not to be enough.
What do you think? I love it! We are going to the movies tonight and I'm bringing it along. There is just enough room for my wallet, phone and tissues. All you need for an evening out.
Have a nice Monday!
