Punk Wristlet for Martha

Martha rides with her husband and had been taking the summer wristlet that I previously made for her.  It looked out of place with the rest of their gear so in July 2012 she requested a new "punk" wristlet and showed me her helmet which has a tonal skull graphic.

For the front panel, I installed grommets and laced it with leather.  I added solid orange fabric behind the grommets so it'd peek through a tiny bit.

I also laced leather through chain to make the wristlet bracelet (had to try a few different styles of chain to get this right).  I used a heavy duty zipper and then pieced scraps of that zipper together to create a tab for the key ring.

I bought some black fabric printed with small white skulls wearing little pink bows for the interior but then I found the PURR-FECT fabric and went in a different direction... Martha is a cat lover and she kindly volunteers at a local shelter regularly.  When I happened upon this kitties riding motorcycle fabric I knew it was meant to be!
