It's often agreed that a lady can never have too many shoes or too many bags. What I can't get enough of are the small wristlet bags – I use them for everything, have a whole range of them now in solids, prints and neutrals.
Perfect to pick up and run out the door with your essentials, when you don't need to be carrying the kitchen sink around with you this evening in your big purse 😉 Ideal too for your first bag if you are fairly new to sewing, or for running up for gifts or to sell. It's a classic style that isn't going out of fashion, so keep up with fashion by using on trend fabrics and you'll always have the perfect bag on hand.
