Zakka Handmades Blog Tour & Giveaway

Wednesday, June 26, 2013


Happy Wednesday! Welcome to my stop on the Zakka Handmades Blog Tour! We're helping Amy Morinaka of Chick Chick Sewing celebrate the release of her new book, Zakka Handmades! Amy's style is so crazy cute and this book is too! I couldn't resist playing along!

I knew that for my stop on the tour I wanted to make something from the book but I have to say, it was hard to choose just one project! There are tons of cute bags, accessories and projects for your home! Ultimately, I choose the Raindrops Tote for my first project!

I decided to use linen, Pure Elements solids and my new line, Nordika for my tote! It was fun playing with the applique raindrops, since it's not something I usually incorporate in my work.  The tote come together really easily, I love the rounded corner detail!

It's lined with another Nordika print and has a little interior pocket. It would be a great size to take to the library or to travel with a small project! Next I want to make some of the fabric buckets!

Congrats on a beautiful book, Amy!
