F/O and leave a tail to sew the strap unto the wristlet. When folded is measures 6".


ASSEMBLY
   I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have it in the position you like best before sewing.
  The eyes you want to sew them between row 6 and 11. Place them 1.5" apart from each other. They gotta be slightly tilted and keep the part with the dc's facing down.
  With the white felt cut a slightly bigger circle then the buttons. Glue it in place. Then sew the buttons on top of the white circles.

  With black felt cut a small triangle and glue it in place between row 4 and 5.
  Now you can pin the zipper and fabric in place to begin sewing them. This took me awhile cause I'm a perfectionist plus cause I had to sew it by hand since I don't own a sewing machine. But this would keep your items from falling out.
  Sew the strap on wristlet.

OMG! I love this so much. This would go perfectly with my iPhone case. Do you sell these on Etsy? I noticed you included a pattern, but my crocheting skills are less than stellar.
