this is a quick snap of my second summer project. a little coin purse that my mother claimed as soon as i finished hand stitching the zipper in. i decided i didn't like the hand stitched zipper. my stitching doesn't look tidy at all, and it takes too much time. i also realized that i need to loosen up my starting chain. i like nice tight crochet stitches, so i use a smaller hook than suggested on projects, but i definitely needed to loosen up just a bit on the starting chain so the bottom wouldn't curl up like that.
i also snagged that tunesian crochet hook. i'm kind of anxious to try that after seeing a lovely dishcloth on a blog or in a magazine somewhere. i just forget where. i swear, summer seems like such a blur since school started back.
