From the Blogger: "This tutorial features step by step pictures & pattern on how to make an Inspired Frida Wristlet. If you're not a fan of wristlets, then using a clutch or a tote would totally be fine too. The Frida wristlet can be made using different materials you already might have, like floral prints, linen panels, or even lace crochet tape. By combining some fabric scraps and a wristlet or a tote you don’t wear, you may make something beautifully unique!"

Materials List

  • Linen or cotton panel
  • Frida pattern
  • Fabric scraps with floral print and solid black
  • A clutch or an wristlet
  • Thread
  • Interlining
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Lace crochet tape


  1. First, print the Frida pattern which you can find HERE. You’ll have to cut it in three pieces: hair, brows and the flowers. The eyelashes are to be embroidered.

  2. Trace the pattern pieces onto the black fabric for hair and brows. Cut out. It’s preferable to apply interlining on both pieces.

  3. Find an appropriate piece of fabric with floral print. Apply the interfacing on the wrong side and cut out the flowers. Arrange pieces together and hand sew them.

  4. As a base, I used a piece of linen (interfaced), but using cotton works fine, too. The linen was white, and to make it beige I dyed it with Ceylon tea.

  5. As for the raw edges of the linen, I suggest using lace crochet tape. I used the crocheted edges of a vintage handkerchief, it was white so again I dyed these pieces with Ceylon tea.

  6. Place the pieces onto the linen panel. Having all the pieces on the panel will look something like in the picture below. Using the sewing machine or by hand sew along the edges of the pieces.

I do happen to have a really nice small bag that I never use because it has a bad mark on the front flap so this is an ideal way to give it new life. As a Frida fan I also love the design so I am looking forward to giving this a go.

Theres nothing better than having a completely unique accessory that shows off your artistry, personality, and powerful feminism! I can even imagine using some other recycled materials to make this pattern even more you, like old doilies for the lace trim. That way its not just couture, but its also eco-friendly.
