... but have finally come to realize that I am simply 100% cotton.
This isn't neccessarily a bad thing. It just strikes me as odd. You see, I really love beautiful creations and am always inspired and impressed by ones that have that ... polish ... to them. You know - pieces that are beautifully executed, refined & technically perfect (nearly perfect, at least); I just can't seem to produce that kind of thing ... I really wish that I could ... case in point:
The above is a pouch that I made last night. The idea came from the squares that I did for The Pink Artist Community Doll Project. It's made from 2 - 2x2 inch squares plus 2 - 1x1 inch squares all crocheted together to make the small pouch with a flap. Originally I was thinking of adding a strap to the pouch, but to what purpose? It isn't like the shape is conducive to an amulet & it's too small (plus lacks a zipper) to be useful as a change purse. Which leads me to wonder ... what does one put in a pouch of this diminutive size?
Please don't misunderstand; I am not unhappy with the results, (infact, I actually like it ... most likely due to its simpicity and craftiness), but when I first completed it, all I could think of was that sad little Charlie Brown Christmas tree (before it was loved & honored into it's beauty). *sigh*
