4.0 out of 5 stars nice book, 21 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use & Enjoy (Design Collective) (Paperback)
This is a collection of designs by different people, some of which have crafty blogs already out there. (Elsie Marley springs to mind)
After the introduction, the format is basic:Image of creation. Short intro to item. Short creator Bio & web address. Required items & then a how to with good clear instructions. x 24

Most projects are linen based.

The nicest/most likely things I would re-create (front cover)sewing kit case & a stem design messenager bag (thats makes you think of ORLA KIELYs stem print) & maybe marleys bear.

Whilst I don't feel inspired by much of the other stuff, I stick to its a nice book, to look at & read about the different creators but there are only few projects I might actually make. There were also some that made me think 'no I can't imagine ever making that' but I guess that's down to personal taste...

Projects I can recall from memory are: zigzag tote, nesting boxes, sewing case, stem bag, large wallet/organiser, pillow with pocket & pal, recycled scrap/ribbon, bread basket/bag, mug rug, quilted fridge magnets, a quilt, sorry the rest slip my mind!

All in it has good photography, good layout, templates at back & is a nice read.
& if you can get it, for the cost of a glossy magazine, it's well worth it!
