This is my next idea for the George st Market. It's a purse worn on your wrist for when you go to the beach or for that walk with a girlfriend and stop at a coffe shop, for traveling or clubbing when you dont want to carry a bag or want to carry a seperate secret stash of cash,a key and or a condom!
This one is quite simple made from linen and embroidered with 1oo% crochet cotton. I might make some even plainer from cute fabric to sell as a more functional item but origionally I imagined them to be a chunky jewellery item and therfore beaded or embroidered. I think kids would use the simple ones more and I could sell them more cheaply as they take less time to make.
This particular model has 2 large buttons on the side and an invisible zipper on the top.
It was a little fiddly to turn through at the ends and on reflection I would use a shorter zip next time. I wore it all day today to see what it felt like. It was very comfortable. The next plan is a wrist purse when I figure out exactly how I'm going to do it!
