Product Details

Product Description


If Scandinavian design doesn't appeal, perhaps you'll find this collection of projects in Japanese style more enticing. The term 'zakka' has been loosely translated to mean 'miscellaneous goods' or sundries.' but in the craft world it has become synonymous with a kind of simple charm and uniqueness—something handmade that is useful and pleasing. 24 designers have each contributed a project, and they include a pincushion, pencil case, mug rug, messenger bag, pot holder, bookmark, coin purse and pillowcase. The instructions seem quite detailed and they're illustrated with diagrams and close-up photographs, as required. This book is another wonderful source for gift ideas and sweet little kinck-knacks to make 'just because.'

(Australian Homespun Magazine, 09/20/12)

Zakka, a Japanese term meaning 'many things' or 'miscellaneous goods,' has evolved into a universal design style that embodies simple charm and a homemade aesthetic. This book showcases projects by fiber artists from around the globe who share this zakka style. The 24 projects comprise bags and totes in a variety of shapes and sizes as well as simple and sweet items like a pencil case, sewing kit, pincushion, patchwork ribbon, and picture frames.

Coleman-Hale, who also writes the blog 'I Heart Linen,' demonstrates her affection for linen and the role it plays in
Zakka Style: all the projects incorporate the natural fabric and exude an organic, homemade feel true to zakka.
(Christine French International Quilt Festival - Quilt Scene, Winter 2012/2013)

My friend purchased this book and brought it over to me for a peek - even though she's only a few blocks away, I put this on my wish list so I can have my own copy :)

I've sewn for a long time so I didn't study the actual instructions provided. I was mainly interested in what kind of projects were presented, and whether they appeared to be simple enough for the average everyday sewist - i.e. - me :) I didn't see anything that made me think ... hmmmmmm "I" couldn't do THAT! I did see a few that had me antsy to try learning a new technique (the Zip Organizer with it's new-to-me zipper installation, and the Sugar Cookie Sack with it's felt cookies) and one project (the House Pouch) that made me run to my email to tell my friend that we have to get together to make one PRONTO, lol. The Elephant Bookmarks are REALLY creative, and the linen bags are seriously cute.

Most of the projects are made with linen and other fabrics and embellishments - very simple and elegant, and could easily be personalized with your own favourite techniques (i.e. crochet, cross-stitch, lace, stamping, weaving etc.). Most, if not all, would make lovely gifts for friends and family. The projects are well photographed - that's always a big help for people who are visual crafters :) Most of projects require only basic supplies, although the Messenger Bag does need some specific hardware that might not be in everybody's sewing basket. Some of the patterns need to be enlarged, which can be a problem if you don't have easy access to a photocopier or copy store.

This is the kind of book I like - full of photographs and pretty new-to-me designs that would be fairly simple and fun to make, and for which I wouldn't have to spend an arm and a leg on supplies. Now - where did I put my stash of linen and rick rack? :)

This book went viral in the quilting community with sew-alongs but it was soon discovered that some of the directions and measurements in the book were incorrect and some of the projects weren't so easy to make.

Simple, lovely and functional projects that are Zakka style inspired. The photos are great, the projects are simple and fun. The mix of plain linen fabrics and bright fun prints make these projects great. I've made many of the projects and hope to work my way through the whole book.

It's a nice book if you haven't already got one lke it, the ideas are nothing new and it seems to be much of the same thing as the other books in the series. The cover much like a movie trailer shows the best parts.
