Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
If Scandinavian design doesn't appeal, perhaps you'll find this collection of projects in Japanese style more enticing. he 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 simle charm and uniqueness - somethng 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 wonderul 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

    Not impressed

    I do not feel the "zakka" projects in this book are very original. There are a few that were really unique and fun -- but for the most part, I feel like I've seen very similar ones before featured as free tutorials on popular sewing blogs. Secondly, I really feel the projects in this book could have benefited from more instructional photos/line drawings. Because the majority of the instructions are in step-by-step written form, I feel this book is only for experienced sewers.
