On the wish list of the Instagram-Follower of the initiative handwork for the sewing competition #machdeinding2020 was a big bag with enough space for laptop and briefcase, which is chic but also suitable for a playground. Accordingly, designer Anke Müller from the label cherrypicking created a pattern and instructions for a clever combination of a chic outer and practical inner pocket.
How can you join in?
Instead of the bloggers' meeting at h+h cologne, the new round of the competition will feature a live Sewalong on the net together with Anna from the well-known YouTube channel "einfach sewen" (simply sew): the time has come on 21 March at 3 pm - all sewing enthusiasts are cordially invited to take part. The free pattern as well as all information about the competition can be found on the website of the Initiative Handarbeit.
