The Flora Wristlet - and Emmaline Bags Pattern by Janelle MacKay - Pattern Tester Photos.

This pattern is my September 2019 pattern for the Bag of the Month Club, and if you are a member of the club, it will now be in your account at If you are not a member, you can still join until the end of November 2019, and after that it will not be available to purchase on my website until Dec 1st, 2019.

The size of the Flora Wristlet is:
Width- 11” (28 cm) Height- 6” (15 cm) Depth- 1” (2.5 cm)

The Flora Wristlet has a nicely curved base and a recessed zipper opening. Instructions are provided to attach a wristlet strap on with a fabric tab and D-ring connection OR a side clip  that the wristlet strap attaches to.

If you would like to attach a fabric tab on either side, or side clips on both sides, you can easily attach a shoulder strap or purse chain. Instructions are included for the optional shoulder strap!

This will make a classy little clutch or wristlet for yourself, or for a gift. I think this will be a great seller for market stalls as well. It's quick to whip up, and doesn't use a lot of fabric, but has some intriguing details.

Let's see more inspiration!

Vanessa Martin's pattern test was with a thick woven upholstery style fabric. Isn't the flower gorgeous! 

Michelle Trip from Barabooboo Designs has made a beautiful Flora wristlet! Wow! 

Tara Sinclair, bag maker and instructor from UhOh Creations, used this really cool textured leather. This is wild! It looks fuzzy, but it's not! 

Just to prove something doesn't have to be floral to be pretty, this is Cheryl Strain's (Cheryl's Quilts & Crafts) clutch! 

Pat DeVore from Washington, created a stunning Flora. She chose to leave off the wristlet strap this time.

Jayne Baldwin of Totally Bagged! also made the Flora - from a floral. Nice choice!! 

 This beautiful version is by Kristi Bermel, owner of Paisley Lane Boutique!

These beautiful bags are by Barbara Hourigan, aka The Bag Lady. She made TWO shoulder bags with chain straps! 

Line Vienneau, a BC bag seller (Fine Line Designs), made THREE of them, and decided she did like the shoulder strap version the best. 

Susan McQuone totally amazed me with this stunner! I love this look. 

Chris Bevan's pretty bold print is perfect! This bag looks good with a small print OR large print! 

Another wristlet with a large print by Nancy Edtl. LOVE this too! 

Our purse chain is a great addition to this bag. This one by Moira Colville. The flowers have gone to seed, but they look like sparklers or fireworks! 

Gwen Lockwood's (GML Designs) is TWO SIDED! How smart. Leather on one side and a bold floral on the other. So classy. LOVE. 

Thank you so much to all of my friends that have tested this bag pattern for me! I just love each and every one, and I could not have done this without you!
