5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and practical projects
I really like this book. It is split into four sections: Everyday; Bags and Pouches; Baby and Young Child and Handmade Kitchen. There is a good balance between both pretty and practical. My favourite section was the Bags and Pouches as there is a good selection to choose from. The instructions are full with good tips and are easy to follow. There are some good original...

2.0 out of 5 stars Returned
After reading this book I was incredibly disappointed with my purchase which has made me return it. I found that the patterns were quite dull and uninspiring. The only thing in the book that I would make would be one of the bird purses for my niece however I was determined not to keep it just for that. Therefore I am returning it to buy a more suitable and attractive...

This review is from: Zakka Handmades: 24 Projects Sewn from Natural Fabrics to Help Organize, Adorn, and Simplify Your Life (Paperback)
I really like this book. It is split into four sections: Everyday; Bags and Pouches; Baby and Young Child and Handmade Kitchen. There is a good balance between both pretty and practical. My favourite section was the Bags and Pouches as there is a good selection to choose from. The instructions are full with good tips and are easy to follow. There are some good original ideas that I haven't seen before such as a cutlery holder which would be useful for a picnic or alfresco dining, and also for storage. I also really like the Bento lunch bag which would alternatively make a great toy or crafts bag, as it is shaped like a bucket tote, but also features an inner drawstring top meaning that nothing can fall out and also the contents of the bag are well protected. In terms of patterns, most of the designs use rectangular or square pieces so don't require a pattern as such, but of the few designs that do, the author has included full size patterns as much as possible with just three patterns requiring enlarging by 200%. I am an intermediate sewer but there was still plenty to interest me.

I found this book needed time to digest.
I loved the designs.
The patterns were very good needed a lot of time to work out
I gave this book to my grand daughter to make some things and she did not find the book difficult

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit disappointing, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zakka Handmades: 24 Projects Sewn from Natural Fabrics to Help Organize, Adorn, and Simplify Your Life (Paperback)
I bought this book being a fan of zakka and although there was a couple of projects I would make I was fairly disappointed with this. I think if you are fairly new to sewing and want something with an overall variety of smaller projects then this would be fine.
