Sometimes when in a creative rut, I find I like to follow someone else's pattern. Not having to think helps me think better! Go figure ;)
I have admired this pattern by keykalou (the "Pocket Clutch") for awhile and finally went ahead and bought it a few weeks ago. I actually hesitated because I thought it seemed silly of me. I design my own patterns, right?
Well, silly or not, I bought it, and really enjoyed making it. Even though she allows buyers of her patterns to sell them, (see her policy page for info) mY intent is just to make gifts.
