The Winner

About this design:

Pockets are magical things, whether they’re real or pretend. Throughout history, pockets have allowed humans to hold items for safekeeping, keep talismans close for good luck, have privacy for things kept hidden and more.


What do you keep in your pockets or perhaps wish you could? This challenge is dedicated to the bits of cloth we love to add to garments, quilts and bags and many other things and how they can be both practical as well as hopeful extensions of ourselves.

Maybe you’d like the ability to carry around a closet size pocket to hold everything you might need or create an invisible pocket just in case or a whimsical pocket that expands to just the size you need. Dream big or think small—we want to see what your pocket dreams are made of!
