Bama Pursey Thing

So I've been commissioned to make a bigger wristlet with an Alabama theme. I'm still working on it, but here's what I have so far.

Hook - 00 (double zero)
Yarn - Worsted Medium 4 in crimson and white
Finished dimensions - 7in X 5in

There should be 22 stitches on each row. Don't forget to count these.

ch 23
1. sk st, sc in next st, sc across, ch 1
2.-35. sc across, ch 1
36. sc in back loop only ch 1
37.-70. sc across, ch 1
71.  sc in back loops only, ch 1
72.-77. sc across, ch 1
78. sc 5, ch 3, sk 3, sc 6, ch 3, sk 3, sc 5, ch 1
79. sc across (when you come to the holes just sc into them instead of each chain) ch 1
80.-81. sc across, ch 1
82. sc across, finish off.

Then I put detail on it, attached buttons, stitched it together and I'm currently waiting to see if I need to put a short or a long strap on it. I'm also wondering if I should put white stripes on the edge of the flap, it looks a little plain to me.

(My rows were straight until I did that A, but it still looks awesome to me ^_^)

So far I have timed it at taking me a little over 5 hours and I haven't even started on the strap yet.
I have no idea if the lady's phone is gonna fit in it cuz I'm just kinda guesstimating it as I go.

Also, it's my first time doing the surface slip stitch thing but I like it. If anyone is interested I got it from here -> Surface Slip Stitching

I'll prolley update when I finish this.

P.S. I gotta say, I'm proud of that A ^_^ Roll Tide baby! And if anyone is interested the original pattern for the mini wristlet is here -> Mini Wristlet Pattern

If anyone makes this, let me know if I've messed up on anything.
