Wristlets are the RAGE!

Well, I think they are! I carry one everywhere I go!


They are small enough to put on your wrist and walk anywhere. I put a few things inside and I can shop to my heart’s content…hands free, and without the weight of a handbag.


Then when I’m back in the car, I tuck it inside my larger handbag. (the one with the camera, phone, etc.)

I’ve listed the ones I have made on

Diane’s Dream Designs!


And I am working on others!

Thanks so much for the orders

and for your encouragement and support!


I love sewing but I’m certainly not a born salesman!

Here’s my button!


I hope you’ll put it on your sidebar and spread the word!

Please visit my new shop HERE! Thank you!

And thanks hubby for getting up early and making me a button!

Oh my goodness they are gorgeous!

I've been so out of blogland I didn't even know you were planning to open a shop. Really beautiful work. And yes, I love wristlets - perfect for an afternoon or weekend out.

I wish you many sales!

Very sweet, I am sure they will be popular, but I always have too much with me, camera, phone etc. All the best with your new venture my friend.

I was wondering yesterday what a wristlet was when you wrote about them. Now I get it! Cute and pretty!

laurie said...

I love wristlets as well and have a few i have made too! They are so easy to carry (wear ) and just pop in the totoe bag when I get in thecar.Best wishes on this adventure, I will put your button on my side bar.

laurie said...

I think I menat tote bag not toe bag of course if you have a toe bag you could use that too,

How embarrassing, sheesh!

I love wristlets! I'm a big fan of carrying around as little as possible! That cowboy one is adorable, girl!

I hadn't heard of wristlets, and I like the idea. Your cowboy one is nice.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

These are cute as can be and I can see the fun of them and not having that purse stuck on my shoulder! hugs, Linda

Della said...

Yes the wristlets are quite the rage judging by all of these lovely comments!
I know I love mine, and want to have more than one...to match every outfit of course! But first, I know a young lady who is having a birthday next month, and she is getting one of Diane's Dream Designs Wristlets. She loves the one you made for me, so I had to come and grab the one in her fave springtime colors! These are awesome Diane!

Elizabeth and Gary said...

My goodness, Diane! You are so multi talented. Those bags are so sweet. I carry a wallet that I found at a garage sale because I tried to use something similar to yours and I was too hard on it.
So..I tucked in into my drawer and put favorite little pieces in it that I didn't was out to get dusty. It's nice for that too.
Cute! Those are sooo cute!
