I Heart Zakka

Really, I do. I just love Zakka. Which is why it's kinda weird that it took me so long to get this book for the shop.
I mean, look at these darling projects:

For fun when I was plotting this post I browsed around a little to find more online Zakka and came across these very inspired blogs:

And Good-ness, a collection of crafting and Japanese loveliness that occasionally ventures into Zakka:

I'm sure there's much more out there to inspire my inner-Zakka-ista, and if you know of anything please pass it along!

Happy sewing!

I love that book! I just got it for my birthday and my house is being overrun by tea cozy squirrels...

This book is the best! I've made the linen basket more times than I can count - last time round the baskets were each fitted with an IKEA plate and filled with homemade lemon glazed cookies for teacher appreciation week. I also made a trio of buckets with a coodinating picnic quilt for my sister's birthday.
