Welcome to my stop on the Zakka Home Book tour. Zakka Home is the latest book written by the very talented Sedef Imer from Down Grapevine Lane and is her second publication with Tuva Publishing.
Sedef’s book is a beautiful collection of small and large projects, and perfectly showcases her wonderful aesthetic of sweet and modern.
I used her House Lavender Sachets pattern to make my first project. However instead of sachets I used her lovely design to make mini house bunting for my girls bedroom. (There has been an update to this pattern which you can find here )
I made it using a selection of fabrics from my collection and stitched the houses to a piece of cotton ribbon – you could also take this bunting idea and theme it for Christmas or any occasion. And their tiny size means they are perfect for using up your favourite scraps.
The second project I made was Sedef’s sweet pouches. They are a fantastic size for gift bags or even storing little trinkets (I’ve been using mine as busy bags to keep in my handbag and keep my children entertained when we are out and about).
I made the bags using Jill Howarth’s latest collection with Riley Blake, Little Red in the Woods. The collection is available this month or you can pre-order through your local fabric store (its also available at Fat Quarter Shop.)
Jill’s collection is perfect for fussy cutting and the pouches are the perfect size to showcase the cute illustrations.
The Zakka Home Book tour has been so much fun to be a part of and I’ve adored seeing how the same patterns can look different depending on the creator and their selection of fabrics and accessories. Below is the full list of participants, definitely worth popping in having a look at their posts.
Tomorrow Sarah will be wrapping the Tour and I can’t wait to see what she creates!
