Zakka Home - Book Tour

Sedef Imer of Down Grapevine Lane has just released her second book Zakka Home for Tuva Publishing - after the wonderful success of Quilt Petite, Sedef is back with another great title to add to your Quilting and Sewing Collection.  Zakka Home is filled with 19 "smaller style" projects to get you inspired to fill your home with beautifully handmade projects.

From Pillows to Kitchenware items such as Tea Towels, Table Runners and Trivets, glorious Bags, sweet embroideries, sewing inspired items like Pincushions and an Armchair Caddy along with items to gift - there is something in this book for everyone to make no matter your level of experience.

While it was hard to choose one project to make - I settled on making the Armchair Caddy as I knew I could put this to use straight away with all the Hand stitching and quilting I have been doing of late at night time while sitting on the couch.

The Armchair Caddy is quick to make and after picking some of my favourite Alice Caroline Liberty fabrics paired with some blush 100%Linen and some pre-made liberty Bias Binding I was all set.  The instructions are simple to follow and with full size pattern pieces included there is little prep to get yourself started.

I decided that for the little pocket details I would Applique the Fabrics rectangles on and added these cute Flower buttons from my Button stash.  My pre-made Liberty Binding also helped quicken the time to make this caddy as it was just the right width for the binding.  

I am so thrilled with how the Armchair caddy came up and it fits perfectly on the arm of my couch.  This is going to be so useful and I can change what it needs to hold for each project I am working on.

With Christmas coming up this book would make not only an excellent book to make lots of gifts for your friends and family but also a great gift for a craft friend.
