Zakka Fabric Bin / Fabric Bucket Tutorial


Hi all! Im falling more & more in love with everything Zakka!

**Zakka (from the Japanese 'zak-ka'(雑貨)or 'many things') is a fashion and design phenomenon that has spread from Japan throughout Asia. The term refers to everything and anything that improves your home, life and appearance**   ~Wikipedia

I've purchased this book from Amazon when we were in the US last year. However, this was the first time that i've attempted one of the projects. Very clear explanation & easy to follow instructions i must say. Suitable for sewing novices as well. 

uuuuu so many cute projects!

All u need are: 2 circles (Shell & lining fabrics), 2 rectangles (Shell & lining fabrics), 2 tabs for the handles (Shell fabric) & respective interfacing.  Batting for the bottom & body. 

The handle tabs
I quilted the lining fabric

Tada.... ! The dimension for this is 10" (diameter) x 12" (height)

Decided to create my own birthday wish tag :)

For those who are keen to try,  ive seen this 'Zakka Handmade' book at Times bookstore. Oh, and there also a lot of fabric basket tutorials out there. Check these out too: 

Meanwhile, for those who are interested to purchase one, come visit me on my EtsyShop yah!

 Have fun! :)
