This review is from: Patchwork Please!: Colorful Zakka Projects to Stitch and Give (Paperback)
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).

Before the projects the book has a detailed tools and techniques section which gives advice on combining fabrics and colours, preparing fabric, different stitches, quilting techniques and paper piecing amongst others.

The projects in the book are for the kitchen, for the kids, for the home, for going places and for crafting. They include coasters, an apron, quilts, bibs, a pencil case, iPad cover and embroidery pouch. They also have a difficulty rating so you can work your way up if you are new to patchwork. It's quite an eclectic mix of projects, but you may find yourself making most of them simply because they look so good! I had never thought to make an embroidery pouch before but now I am dying to make one.

The projects have step by step written instructions with the odd colour diagram or photo. The templates are alongside each project rather than all at the back of the book. Most of them are the correct size but the odd few require enlarging.

I can't wait to get started on the embroidery pouch.
