Giveaway: Zakka Style

Who’s your craft crush? I’m here to admit that I’m a little obsessed with Rashida. Not only did she design Washi, my current favorite fabric collection but she just curated this gorgeous book, Zakka Style: 24 Projects Stitched with Ease to Give, Use & Enjoy. Rashida Coleman Hale invited 24 of her favorite designers to each bring you one of their most loved projects—including quilts, softies, pillows, decorative items, and bags. Swoon!

But what is “Zakka,” you ask? Rashida defines it in the introduction of her book:

Zakka has been loosely translated from Japanese to mean “miscellaneous goods,” “many things,” or “sundries.” It has grown to mean a style that embodies a kind of simple charm and uniqueness—something handmade that is useful, yet pleasing. Zakka has evolved into a design style that has become popular all over the world.

Want to win a copy? Read on to learn more about this drool-worthy book and how to enter.

As with all of the Design Collective titles, Zakka Style focuses on the advanced beginner sewist who does not need a lot of the basic sewing instructions, but wants to dive right into the projects. By streamlining the instructions this way, they can pack in more projects for you to make and enjoy into each book, but still give you all of the step-by-step instructions you will need to be successful.

So whether you enjoy embroidery, appliqué, patchwork, or a little bit of everything, you are sure to find something to inspire you in this brand new book.

And now for the giveaway – one lucky reader will win a copy of Zakka Style! To enter to win, leave a comment here telling us your craft crush anytime between now and midnight PDT April 17th. Maybe the bohemian Anna Maria? Classic Martha? Vintage Elsie? No extra credit for picking me or Jaime. Ha! So spill it! U + ? 4EVR

My crafty crush??? omg how do you chose just one? Gwen Marston a liberated quilter… she is my fav quilter…
then we have Cath Kidson… her fabrics are very quaint and pretty… which one if I have to chose from the two????
Gwen, she has more erm well she has a more fluid approach to the precise world of quilting x


I feel like I’m new to the crafting world, so I don’t have a favorite yet; however, I always look forward to reading your posts! They always catch my eye!


I have a major craft crush on Alicia Paulson. She’s a local blogger who is amazing!

Donna Fuqua

Amy Butler is my favorite, this week lol. I like her style. But I also like Pinterest. If I get bored working on a project I just hop on there and wham!! I get my mojo back. So many beautiful fabrics and ideas. I want to make it all but unfortunately my skill doesn’t match my enthusiasm.


It’s such a hard question, there are just so many inspiring people and projects. If it is to be related to my dream of one day combining illustration and fabric, I have a big crush on Sarah Jane, Heather Ross and Patty Sloniger. As for clever crafty ideas – Michele Pacey @Michele made me is one of my favourite.


right now I adore Amy Gibson, I am following the Craftsy Block of the Month and I can only say I adore her, she makes everything look so simple and quick! and I love Moda flowered fabrics they make me bloom!


You two have turned me on to so many different designers and given me ideas for a lot of beautiful projects so I’d have to say…you!


I am currently crushing on quilting, small animal hammocks, and baby clothes.

I don’t know about a crush, but I just love Amy Butler on Craftsy.
I’d love to win this book.


Not really sure yet. I’m still new to all of this sewing and crafting funness. I love the vintage look, and the style of fabrics that are shown on this post are awesome. Mostly I find my stash of fabric at yard sales and Goodwill, but do occasionally purchase something. Although I’m never sure what brand it is. 🙂


Oh I don´t know, I visit all days a bunch of blogs, can be my favorites? Because can pick one. If that is the case I choose, Trula Kids, Cirque du bebe, Skirt as top, and MADE. Those are my favorites, favorites.


I love feedsack style scrap quilts and reproductions. I’ve been recently mixing quilting and embroidery, and would love this book!


classic Martha 🙂 But I recently found a whole bunch of really creative blogs (such as yours!). Even after looking through them I don’t think I can pick just one. They’re all so pretty!

Mi craft crush is vintage Elsie from A Beautiful Mess :)! I’m always so inspired by her projects :).

I like Purl Bee but check the 50 or so blogs under my favorites on a regular basis.


I really enjoy LiEr at ikatbag – she not only sews but does science stuff too. And no-one works the cardboard like she does!


I love Amanda Jean over at Amanda Jean’s blog was THE first I ever read, and I still visit her every week for my “crazy mom” fix! I love her new book and she makes quilting very approachable!!!!


I am currently crushing on cute bags by any designer. I love the Zakka book, its on my Amazon wishlist!
