This past week I have been working on a new plarn purse. It is a small one, but I've tried to be more creative with it.... and in turn, it has been taking me a long time. I was really excited about it at first, but now I'm not sure I like it. I just have to sew in the lining and then I'm done. I will post it when it is finished. I've sort of run out steam though.
Feeling frustrated about all the time I took (or is that wasted?) I looked over some of the bags I've done. Some of my earlier ones I can't see anyone buying. But there are a few that I am happy with. Like this one below. It is one of my favorites. I haven't posted it on Etsy as I need to save most of my bags for the Fall Bizarres I plan to go in with my neighbor.
I am feeling a little uncertain about my creative abilities. My insecurities have me visioning people smirking at my attempts to sell what I've made. Yet, I remind myself that I love to crotchet and I love working with different materials. It is a fun hobby and if worse comes to worse I will just be stuck with a life time supply of bags and purses! :o)
I'm thinking of trying to make some small rugs next. I've seen them done and they can turn out really nice. I think I just need a break from my purse making! ;o)
