Zakka Sewing

BY Therese Laskey, Chika Mori

Description
In Japanese, zakka means “household goods,” referring specifically to hand-sewn items for domestic use: tableware, kitchenware, containers of various kinds, even simple clothing. Sometimes elegant, sometimes cute, always charming, zakka are functional, sewn objects. Therese Laskey and Chika Mori open the world of zakka to non-Japanese speakers with this book for English-speakers. From the utterly simple (an appliquéd pot holder and flower-shaped coasters) to the ambitious (a house-shaped camera cozy, an adorable pair of comfy padded slippers), each project includes easy-to-follow instructions and how-to illustrations, all designed by the best zakka makers in Japan, but patterned and explained in English.
