This post is part of the Zakka Style Sew Along, please visit here to catch up if you’re just joining us!


Hello week 5!  I can’t believe how quickly these  Mondays arrive.

How are your projects going?

Last week was another good one in the flickr group, take a peek:

It was a lot of fun to see the way everyone personalized their kit!

This last week we had 59 entries and the winner of the $30 gift certificate to Zip It is :

#57, Annie

Thank you so much Zip It!


This week we are making the Patchwork Pencil Case and Kerry will be inspiring us with her take on this cute project!

Projects that are completed and linked this week are eligible to win a fat quarter bundle of Le Femme by Melissa Crowley.

I am quite excited about this line!

It will be available to purchase in June and it’s printed on Robert Kaufman’s Essex linen/cotton base which is dreamy to sew with.

RK has generously donated 8 fat quarter bundles of this line to giveaway during the sew along.   Thank you Robert Kaufman!

You may begin linking up your finished Pencil Cases today through Sunday May 6th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win the Le Femme fat quarter bundle.

Click on the frog picture below to link up your project or to view the entries.

Head on over and visit Kerry and make sure to visit her and Penny’s pattern shop, Sew Ichigo.

I just purchased the Kitchen Classics set and I can’t wait to sew up a Kitchen Aid block!

Have fun this week, Lindsey

  • Wow! That was a tough one. I just got mine done – after trying all week with dreadful results – at 10:30 MT… I didn’t know the linky was EST or I’d be watching TV right now. LOL. Thanks for inspiring me another week. Looking forward to the next project.

    After you making it clear last week that only one entry per week is acceptable, a certain person has yet again entered twice. You deleted her extra photos last week. This is not fair of her to continue to disregard the rules.ReplyCancel

  • I have wondered what zakka is all about and seeing all of these cute projects being made – how can one resist. So I have just ordered my book and popped the button on my blog. Now i have to patiently wait until it is delivered to get started. I will join in with the project you are up to when the book is here, and then try and catch up backwards with the projects already done.ReplyCancel
