I first heard the word "Zakka" on Emily Kate's blog. Last week I borrowed the book "Zakka Sewing" from my local library. I only borrowed it for the eye candy, because I mostly just like to sew clothes. Then, as I was wrapping my camera in a washer to protect it in my bag on the kindy picnic, I thought perhaps I needed a little zakka. A while back, Peacock Chic made herself a really groovy camera case, which has inspired my zakka version.
It is very cute. Perhaps a little too cute for me? Maybe I should have stuck to plain linens. Or maybe a drawstring bag in pretty fabric would have been sufficient. I'll try it for a while. If I find that I am embarrassed to take my camera from my bag, I might have to re-gift it.
