Unfortunately, most every time I tried to use it in this way, the silly hooks that hold the straps on would come loose!!! So to save my favorite wallet (and my sanity) I decided to improve on it's design!
My first step was to trim the purse strap to wristlet length. By doing this, I also removed those pesky clips.
In this picture I am checking the length prior to sewing.
I had to sew the straps sideways to get traction from both feed dogs.
I sewed MANY stitches back and forth to make sure the straps could withstand the weight of the wallet. I also singed the edges of the straps with a lighter to make sure they wouldn't fray over time.
And there you have it! This wristlet wallet is now completely functional! Thanks Mom, and thank you all for reading.
