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".

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.
