I’ve been on a zakka kick since I first discovered the word. I love handmade items that fall in the zakka category. Their style appeals to my senses and satisfies that domestic side of me. This is a little fabric basket or bucket that I sewed for my daughter. I haven’t sent it to her yet but I am filling it with some handmade items for her to use for hand sewing. I am including a needle book, pincushion, and a scissors keep. I will be posting those as I finish them. This was a Simplicity pattern that included a sewing machine cover, various sizes of these baskets, and other sewing room items. They all called for fat quarters which is what I used mostly. Some pieces were just scraps from various sources.
The next one I make, I will select the fabrics for the prairie points so that they contrast a little more with the bottom band. These fabrics I used were gorgeous and all from a coordinated fat quarter bundle but sewn like this they do not really compliment each other with enough contrast. In my opinion, that is.
