5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to get started
I've seen this book all over blog land lately so I just had to review it. If you want to see what people have been making from the book do Google Patchwork Please Zakka along. This book contains 20 colourful Zakka projects. Zakka translates as `many things' meaning objects that improve your home, life or appearance (this definition comes from the book)...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book shame about the templates, 1 May 2013

This review is from: Patchwork Please!: Colorful Zakka Projects to Stitch and Give (Paperback)
I pre-ordered this book and have signed up to an online Sew A Long for it, so was really looking forward to receiving it. On first glance the book did not disappoint, there is a good variety of simple (pepper coasters) and more complicated (lap quilt) projects. The instructions are comprehensive and the photos of the completed projects are inspiring. My only disappointment in the book is that for several of the projects the templates included need to be resized before use, which I find very frustrating when I want to try out projects straight away. It is particularly annoying when, as in the Embroidery pouch templates, full size templates would easily fit on an A4 page. Other than that it is a great book that I will enjoy making from.

Lots of projects to be making. Excellent value for money. Sometimes you only find one or two things but with this book it will keep me busy for a while.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and new, not too difficult, 14 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Patchwork Please!: Colorful Zakka Projects to Stitch and Give (Paperback)
I like it because of the fresh and new ideas for using cotton and linen fabrics. The colours and fabric choices are fun too. I find the patterns okay but simple, a bit too simple for me.
