Studio Clip is a company selling zakka and clothings. They have both an online store as well as physical stores in Japan. Today I discovered one of their blogs – which is a huge library of “how to make” patterns for zakka goods!
To date (it was last updated early Feb), there are 116 patterns available. The zakka goods include bags (all kinds and for both adults and kids), pouches, cozies, baby goods, placemats, aprons, tissue box covers… whatever you can think of!
Most of the site is in Japanese, and if you use Chrome or any browser which does auto-translate, it should be possible to understand the important points such as what supplies are needed and how much fabric to use. At the end of each post there will be a PDF file (look for the words “PDF” in the link. That will be the pattern you need. Below is an excerpt from one of the patterns. Most of the “how-to-make”s are in diagram form so it is pretty easy to understand.
So what are you waiting for? There are 116 projects to browse, lots of ideas for making your own zakka goods. Have fun!
