'Zakka Home' Book Tour

Elizabeth Chappell

'Zakka Home' Book Cover

If you haven't see Sedef Imer's new book, 'Zakka Home', you need to!  It is beautiful and full of fun projects you'll fall in love with.  The hardest part for me about this book tour was choosing only one project to showcase.  

I decided to make the 'Sweet Pouch' on page 91 of the book.  The Holidays are around the corner and these bags are such a fun way to give a gift. 

This little pouch has drawstrings that pull it closed, and the finished pouch measures 5" x 8".  I love the little details of the bag, like the beads on the ends of the drawstrings, and the decorative tie on the front of the bag.  I think I'm going to tie a little gift card to that!

The best part of this pattern?  It took me a little less than 1 hour to make this bag, and I have never made anything like this before.  Now that I have one pouch under me, I can make these in no time!  So even if you hav never conquered a project like this, you can make this.  I am here as an example. ;-)

Be sure to visit Sedef's blog, Down Grapevine Lane, to see the other projects people have made from her book.  Click HERE.
