"If you could find anything you like in a pocket what would it be? ”

Watch “Poketto” on #Vimeo

んとよ、こごさ ポケットあっと思ってけろな。 んでそっからなんでもすぎななででくっとすっと何いいべな。書いでみねがい。絵さしてもいいなだ。 ほしたらそいず ポケットんながさいっちょくべ。ほがの人書いだなも見でみ。"If you could find anything you like in a pocket what would it be? Write it. Draw it. Leave it in a pocket. Read what others said.”

 Tie 2 pieces together first, then tie different pair to make stronger. Slits could be much longer. If you turn T-shirts inside out and tie, the slits would stay inside the bag and invisible. Be creative and have fun.
