Diva challenge 358 - pickpocket
Pickpocket by Tomas Pedros, was a new tangle for me which I'd been seeing with surprising frequency even before diva Laura Harms picked it for this week's challenge. I think it looks really cool and was excited to try it, even though it's one of those tangles that looks really good done with precision. Precision is not a setting that exists within my hand-eye coordination, and I don't really understand it well enough yet to do my own funky version of it, but it was fun to start exploring. Here's my first version:
Since the tangle looks woven, I wanted to try unraveling the edges to make a fringe -- cool idea, but I didn't really like how it came out, so I tried again.

This one has a very different feel to it, and I enjoy the contrast between the two tiles. Maybe when I go to use pickpocket another time, I'll feel familiar and confident enough to go for funky after all.
