Zakka Along 2.0 Patchwork Please: Tea Cozy + Pouch

6.17.2013





I'm super honored to be joining in on this Zakka Along!  If you're not sure what I'm talking about you can read more about it here on LR Stitched.  Basically we're celebrating Ayumi (Pink Penguin) newly released book Patchwork Please!  Every week another blogger shares their version of one of the projects in the book and we giveaway some great stuff.  Can't go wrong with that!




Ayumi is such a kind and generous person.  I'm so glad I have her book finally!  I've been eagerly waiting for her to finish it and then for it to be published.  She's put so much thought and detail into each project.  I really love the construction methods she used for both the Lettered Tea Cozy + Tea Pouch.  They were truly a joy to make.

Each step is very clearly laid out and well written.  There aren't a ton of illustrations or visuals, but again, things are explained so well that it feels like she's sitting right alongside helping out!


I felt a bit out of my comfort zone with the mostly primary colors of Cloud 9's collection by Steffi Brocoli (In the Forest), but in the end it's quite beautiful and every project I've seen made with them is gorgeous.  It was hard to stop taking pictures once I was finished.  They went so dreamily with the Robert Kaufman denim linen (purchased mine from Pink Chalk Fabrics) and Essex Linen in Sunshine (purchased from Pink Castle Fabrics).


Ok, so the nitty gritty!  I think this is a great project combo just for the shear variety of skills you can build upon.  A little bit of paper piecing (nothing too complicated so it would make a great starter) and some quilting make this project really fulfilling.  I really liked that each part was so different, no crazy repetitiveness, so it was definitely an interesting sew.


Here's a schedule of all the other participating bloggers! Hang out each week as we work our way through the book, from June through the first week in October!
