COSYNETTE the testers’ bags.

I kind of felt like I left my baby with someone the first time. Clicking on “send” button when mailing the testers was so exciting to me. I was convinced of the pattern and the testers, so why these nerves?

That nervousness turned out to be completely unnecessary. On the contrary! Some testers I knew quite well, others I really didn’t. But surprised that I was! So happily surprised! It were intensive test-days, but so much fun. It was also incredibly beautiful to be able to read how the testers, many of whom did not know each other, treated each other so kindly and encouragingly. How they helped me and besides sewing their bag(s), they also spent time answering my questions and sending me very valuable feedback. A big, huge, sincere thank you! šŸ˜˜

It is with great pride that I let you enjoy their bags. Their gorgeous creations! Be inspired and savour this photo overload.
