I love me some Zakka!

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)


  1. This must be for me!

  3. What a cute little project! I have been ooohing and aaaahing over this book and its projects in blogland for a while now... It would be wonderful to win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  4. Oh how cute. I'd love to win your book!

  5. I too have been seeing Zakka projects all over the blogosphere - would love to have a copy for myself. Thanks for the chance!

  6. I have just discovered this book. Thanks for the chance to win! BTW, your work is always SO nice! :D


Thanks for your two cents!
