What is stitch zakka? Well, the term zakka comes from the Japanese ‘zak-ka’, meaning ‘many things’ and is defined as ‘everything and anything that improves your home, life and appearance, Zakka can also be contemporary handicraft. Stitch Zakka, the book, is a collection of twenty-two delightful embroidery projects, ranging in complexity from simple outline designs worked in back, split and stem stitch to a sampler that utilises fourteen different stitches. Used to decorate all sorts of handy, everyday items including, cushions, bags, baby clothes, quilts, sewing accessories and wall hangings, each project is explained in detail and includes construction information if required. A handy stitch glossary is included at the back of the book along with some useful information for binding quilts. All of the projects are stitched using ‘Cosmo’ stranded cotton, thread but it would be easy to convert these to whatever you have in your collection.
