Learn how to sew simple, clever things that organize your home and help with daily tasks with Zakka Handmades! These incredibly useful projects include pouches and bags, small toys and baby items, and handy kitchen accessories. Some of the author’s sewn items also incorporate simple crochet. In Japanese, zakka means “household goods,” referring to items for domestic use—tableware, kitchenware, containers of various kinds, even simple clothing. What all the items have in common is a simple, fresh, handmade aesthetic; a subtle, clever wit; and absolute usefulness and practicality.
