They are inspired by zakka, a Japanese term for finding beauty in the ordinary, and for objects that have meaning and bring happiness to their owner.

There are also all different kinds of bags, such as totes, purses, and washbags, as well as cases for your most used things—cell phone, e-reader, keys.

This inspirational sewing book is practical, teaching you all you need to know, while gorgeous photography and step-by-step artworks make it colorful and stylish—just like the projects themselves.
