How to make an attached double pocket wristlet clutch.

115:54 Prepare the Wristlet Strap
31:09 Mark the Zipper Box
35:44 Round off the Corners
40:02 Attach the Zipper
1:01:36 Prepare the Pockets
1:07:01 Add Snaps
1:18:58 Create the inner pocket - where the magic happens!
1:29:34 Final Construction

The clever construction method (not my original idea) creates the cute internal credit card slot pocket. The large size has a divided pocket with each slot able to hold about 3-4 cards stacked together. The medium and small have one open pocket that will hold multiple cards as well.

Pattern comes with complete detailed and picture laden instructions for making the wristlet strap and the clutch itself.

I used alternate colors for the two pockets for demonstration purposes. I would recommend using the same materials for both. This pattern is best designed for cotton woven materials.
