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.

  1. I like your two versions... especially the cracked pavement look on the sides of the first tile.

  2. They're both cool. I'm not yet proficient enough with Pickpocket to be very creative with it---but I did also use it with Hollibaugh---great minds. ;-)

  3. That first tile with the sort of cracked edges really floats my boat. Just love it.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. I'm trying to boldly go to creative places I don't normally go to. Good to have you along!

  4. Both pieces are great! I think I like the frayed edges the best.
