pretty adorable.

Patchwork, Please!: Colorful Zakka Projects to Stitch and Give by Ayumi Takahashi is a collection of projects done in patchwork. We are talking the types of patchwork projects that you can create from bits and pieces of fabric, fat quarters and scraps, so the best kind. Included are clear instructions that are extremely easy to understand, each followed by graphics. For those of you who have been there, done that with patchwork, there are many original, one of kind projects throughout these pretty pages.

"Interweave/F+W Media; $22.95,"

Takahashi uses a Janome DC4030 (whatever that means), but assures readers that a “basic” machine is all that is necessary. She has more of a “forties", "fifties" and "sixties" retro style when it comes to fabric, but that doesn’t mean you have to. I for one, really enjoy the vintage looks. Patchwork, Please! is the perfect DIY book for beginners and especially for those looking for patchwork inspiration.
