Wrist Wallet Free Pattern Roundup

When I’ve seen wrist cuffs in magazines and online, I’ve thought of them as a fashion accessory. Recently I learned that some wrist cuffs are actually wrist wallets. This post is a wrist wallet free pattern roundup.

There are some wrist wallet patterns available online for purchase. If you’re not sure you want to commit to a pattern purchase or are unsure of your sewing skills, this wrist wallet free pattern roundup  is for you. I’ve scoured the internet for free wrist wallet patterns so that you don’t have to.

Browsing the internet for wrist wallets lead me to several categories of wrist wallets. They differ according to the materials used and/or method of construction.

  • Woven Fabrics
  • Knitted Fabrics
  • Crochet (yarn)
  • Leather
  • Other no-sew

I don’t have enough experience with crochet or leather work to summarize those tutorials so I’ve omitted them from this roundup. See below some of my favourite projects in the woven fabric, knitted fabric and No-Sew categories.

Conclusion

Wrist wallets are a handy way to carry small items when you’re on the go. Their size limits their carrying capacity to cards, cash, coins, and/or a few keys. This may be ideal for individuals who don’t want or need to carry larger wallets or who don’t have or want pockets. Imagine going to the beach or swimming pool while on vacation. All you need is your hotel room key. Imagine going on a run or jog and to a fitness centre. All you need is a house key or locker key. Maybe you’re going to a party or club and only need your ID, bank/credit card and a small amount of emergency money.

Wrist wallets make great gifts and are quick easy to sewing projects. There are a variety of styles and many can be adapted to the size of the wearer. No-sew options also exist.
