Descriptions du produit

Zakka Sewing The phrase "Made in Japan" once conjured images of assembly-line production, but now it connotes well-made products that are unique and ingeniously designed--sometimes elegant, sometimes cute, always charming. And none are more charming than the graceful, functional, sewn objects called zakka. In Japanese, zakka means "household goods," referring specifically to hand-sewn items for domestic use--t...

Ce livre est (encore pour ce style de livre de couture) une pure merveille.

Les projets présentées sont très jolis, dans un style japonais plutôt kawai mais aussi assez sobre.
Zakka est (si j'ai bien compris) l'art de rendre joli les objets utiles. Chaque projet (noté suivant sa difficulté : pratique!) est celui d'un designer différent donc les styles sont vraiment très variés.
Bien sûr, des sacs, des sets de table, trousses et mouchoirs, mais dans un style sashiko (broderie japonaise) que j'ai apprécié.

Je trouve ce livre aussi une inspiration pour améliorer ses propres objets, un premier pas dans le zakka.

Sobre et séduisant.
En plus de l'écureuil chauffe théière, on retrouve la trousse lapin.
Un très bon livre de couture.
A conseiller pour débutant en couture.

Finally! 20 septembre 2008
Par L.A. in CA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you are addicted to those adorable Japanese Craft Magazines, but find yourself frustrated by their lack of instructions in English, then you should check out this book. There are 25 projects here - from the very simple such as potholders and book covers to the more complicated such as comfy room shoes.

The book is beginner friendly with a section on simple sewing techniques, and descriptions of tools & materials needed. A person with more advanced skills may find some of the projects too simple. And some may wonder about the necessity of projects like covered tape measures or corsage pincushions. Still, other projects hit home. For me, the slippers are a must-do. These are nearly impossible to make if you have to rely solely on Japanese instructions. Other favorites of mine are the sashiko projects and the bird pillow. There is a list of helpful resources in the back.

Cute! I hope this is the first of many more English language zakka books to come.

Nice to have something in English, but... 2 décembre 2008
Par lc - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
For my birthday, my friend gave me Zakka Sewing. The book is a delight to look at, but in my opinion, not accessible for a beginner.

First off, you get this book, and unless you improvise, you really can't make anything from it right away. Why? Every pattern that I am interested in making requires that it be enlarged 200-250% (depends on the pattern). Furthermore, there are no tips on enlarging the patterns. If you photocopy them, you need paper larger than 8.5x14. I was eager to make the squirrel teapot cozy on the cover, and I had to free hand most of the pattern using my french curve in order to get immediate gratification.

Next, the materials list for the teapot cozy says, "thick wool felt." Well, I used thick wool felt and after completing the pattern as the book instructs, my cozy is floppy and won't stand up, never mind that it doesn't fit on my teapot. I will need to improvise, use interfacing, and I think I will even add batting to insulate. That's all okay, but c'mon, for the hard earned $24.95 that my friend spent, I expect a little more! If the purpose of this book is to make Japanese style patterns more accessible to those who do not read Japanese, why do I feel like I get so much more from the Japanese craft mooks that give me full size patterns and excellent drawn instructions (though, admittedly I can read enough Japanese to help me along) for the same price?

Follow up to other reviewer who commented on what I wrote:

Please note, that the directions in the book say to reproduce the patterns on a photocopier, there are no directions or notes anywhere in the book that suggest tiling pages. Furthermore, the materials list for the tea cozy states, "Thick grey wool felt, 15"x24"". If I am to purchase 1/4" thick grey wool felt, then the directions should state that.

The point of my review was that this book aims to be easily accessible for the English speaking audience; it falls short.

Very nice view of Zakka crafting 3 mai 2010
Par Helen Kaelin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have sewn before and done a few basic things such as costumes, pillows, and things that aren't necessarily that difficult. I'd stopped sewing out of fear that I wouldn't be able to comprehend some of the more in-depth patterns.
I've fallen in love with the zakka movement, but wasn't entirely sure what it was about, or what was meant by "deep subtext" that is constantly referred to in the definition. This book helped explain common thematic elements and why they're used so often, going a long way to help me understand what zakka "is", and what it is not.
In addition, the instructions were VERY easy, and aside from the pain that would come from enlarging some of the patterns 200%+, it is VERY easy to understand. I enjoy the button rating system within it that tells you you're fine if you're a beginner (one button) up to a project you'll probably want to have a drink with while you're working on it. (3 buttons).
The projects are all very cute, easily explained, and best of all it's very easy to see how they might be adapted to be bigger, smaller, larger, or differently shaped.
If you're looking for a nice book to get in to the whole zakka thing, it's definitely a good one. It explains in detail what supplies you'll need to complete it, and has a picture for every step of the way. If the only thing you've had access to until now are the Japanese craft books, it'll also give you a little insight in to the diagrams within them as well, since sometimes an explanation is nice to go along with the detailed picture.
I'd recommend buying this book to friends who want to start sewing or who love Japanese trends and cute, kitschy things without hesitation.

A lovely Japenese sewing book for inspiration 11 octobre 2009
Par Serine E. Shannon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The design layout and the photography were the first thing that drew me to this book. I often love Japanese sewing patterns, but they are difficult to find in English. This book has wonderful, clear directions. I love the little snippets on the history of Zakka, Japanese folklore and little household tidbits. The button rating system for project difficulty makes it easy to chose projects in your comfort and skill range. It is easy to feel inspired to make these cute patterns or design your own based on this book. I found some of the projects to lovely twists on the usual sewing project like the Squirrel Tea Cozy, the House Mug for coffee mug and spoon and the Sashiko Placemats are quite elegant. Some of the projects, perhaps because they are beyond my comfort zone for sewing, seem like way too much work and I'd rather buy something on Etsy than go through the trouble, like the House Camera Case and the Bunny Wallet. All in all it a lovely and unique collection and an asset to my craft book collection, though I'm not sure how much I'll use it.

Beautiful projects suited for all levels of experience 8 mars 2009
Par Francie Horton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I just received Zakka Sewing this past week and I already have many projects dogeared to make as soon as possible. The room shoes/slippers were mentioned by another reader and I think those will make the top of my list. After that, I believe I will make several things as gifts for loved ones.

The book begins with basic terminology and techniques, both about Japanese trends and sewing. It also explains some common fabrics and materials used in the book.

The "problems" that were mentioned in an earlier review can be easily fixed. The patterns can be enlarged and printed, tiled, on regular paper. You can use those as the pattern pieces or if you find that too stiff, trace them onto tissue paper from there. And as for the matter with the thick wool felt, it is possible to buy a stiff wool felt that is 1/4" thick and plenty suitable for the tea cozy.

I found that several of the projects were perfect for my 16 year old daughter who has only been sewing for about 6 months. And yet there were projects that were nicely challenging for me, someone who has been sewing for 20 years or so. Conveniently, each of the projects is rated one to three buttons based on difficulty so you don't find yourself in over your head.

The household goods and personal items included are both functional and beautiful. I believe the covered tape measure was also mentioned but its necessity was called into question. How lovely would it be in a gift basket of sewing supplies for a seamstress? Perhaps with a copy of this book. :)
