I am part of the Rapid and Tiny Zakka Swap (RATZ swap) and it runs on a one month cycle. So far we have made keychains, magnets and this month it is needlebooks.
My partner is a secret so I can't say too much other than I was thrilled to have her as my partner as she is one of the people I have been in swaps with the longest.
I decided to go with linen which is somewhat a given in Zakka items, and who doesn't love linen?
It's a grey linen which I thought helped bring out the pinks of the flower. The "tie" which is actually velcro-ed is a ribbon I found in my vast collection. Sadly it is hand sewn as I completely blanked out on doing it before I attached the front and back and turned inside out.
The inside pockets are a fun sewing fabric I have had forever but have been too afraid to cut into until now. I find it is always easier to start on a much loved fabric when it is for a friend :)
So now that you have seen my needlebook, it is time to make some Zakka for yourself with a giveaway!!
(Snuck that one in eh? lol)
I bought two copies when this came out so I could share the love! I know a lot of people already have this, but I hope some people are still hoping to win it :)
Just leave a comment and I will choose someone by Tuesday July 17, 2012 6 p.m. my time... (Eastern)
