book giveawaybook giveaway 2

In this book, you will find more than twenty projects with illustrated instructions, patterns, and helpful tips. These easy-to-sew projects: pouches and bags, small toys and baby items, personal accessories, and handy kitchen items all share a simple, fresh, artistic with a delicate, clever wit; and with complete usefulness.  I see many cute ideas that I will try since my sewing machine is now in a place where I can sew comfortably. With the holidays nearer than we want to believe, we can find many gift ideas to create during this summer and fall. The meaning of the word Zakka is a Japanese term for the many small household goods that organize our homes and help us with daily tasks. By making these items yourself gives them a personal touch that can’t be bought.  Follow the directions just as shown, or design the items to go well with their recipients taste.  Zakka is fun to make, fun to use, and even more fun to share with others! This is what Amy Morinaka illustrates in this book; originally from Japan, currently living in sunny California with her husband and two girls. She is an accountant, a green-tea drinker, and a chocoholic who just loves to sew, patchwork, embroider, crochet, and more! Amy enjoys creating handmade zakka, or small necessities used in everyday lives. Her zakka items are both charming and practical, that are made by delicately combining natural fibers of 100 percent linen, cotton, and wool, together with added details of small embellishments and detailed handwork.

To enter, in the comment area simply Type (ENTER ME)!  This giveaway will run from today July 15, 2013 through July 21, 2013 and I will post the winner and the new giveaway on Monday July 22th!  Good luck!
