Some ideas come before their time.
In this instance, I speak of the crochet "pocket belt" and "purse belt". . .
. . . or (as I think of them) the fanny pack prototypes.
No, really. Aren't they essentially just an early, crocheted version of a belly bag (or bum bag, pouch, belt pack, hip sack, or whatever other term you prefer)?
More proof that there are no new ideas. (So why even bother getting up in the morning, right?)
