Today we’ve got a super simple sewing tutorial for you today! I am over at Lil’ Luna sharing how to make these fun diy zippered pouches and I’ve got a complimentary tutorial for these easy sew wristlets that work perfect with the pouches.
- Fabric cut into 13″x 2″ strip
- lobster clasp
- 16mm ring
- sewing machine or needle and thread
To start you’ll cut your fabric into a strip 13″ long by 2″ wide. You’ll take the fabric peice and run it through the sewing machine to apply a zigzag stitch around all the edges to prevent freying. (You can use a serger if you have one too)
Next you’ll fold your edges in starting with one side, iron down, then fold the other side over top of the first folded edge. Press with iron. You will then run the fabric through the sewing machine making a straight stitch down the center.
Next you’ll fold the fabric length in half, and add on the 16mm ring to one side. Then sew a straight stitch to secure both edges of fabric together.
Now you’ll fold the sewed edge into itself and move the ring to the bottom. Sew a few straitch stitches to secure in place.
Finish off by adding the lobster clasp to the ring and your wristlets are ready to attach.

Found this tutorial but I have hard time with the zippers and sewing so that they don’t get pinched. I found this tutorial on how to fix pinched zippers but I just don’t understand them. Do you have a closeup of how you fixed the zipper issue?
In my original tutorial I shared over at Lil’ Luna, I actually didn’t have an issue with pinched zippers. Mine laid pretty flat.
