*ZAKKA: is Japanese and can be best explained as an expression for ”many things”. It is a fashion and design phenomenon that comes from Japan, inspired by the utensils from the West and with a keen interest in Nordic and Scandinavian design, old or new. With this magazine we want to make ”zakka” a familiar expression in our northern part of the world as well. Zakka can also be described as ”the art of seeing the practical and usable in the ordinary and mundane” Sida 2

RECYCLING Renew with fabric ... Sida 8


We simply dressed our old trivets in various fabrics both from our own fabric series, you’ll find them on, and with other beautiful fabrics and scraps of fabric. Maybe a nice tea towel would fit to cut in half? Remember not to use bright fabrics as we, to make this craft quick and easy, just stapled the fabric on the back with a staple gun and thereof it is not possible to remove for washing.

instructions Things to do: Put the trivet on the fabric and cut a square for about 7 cm from the trivets edge. To make the variant with sewn-on patches sew them down now, we made it easy for us and staggered them down. Then staple the fabric on the underside of the trivet. Stick the staples in a circle and tighten the fabric before adhering to get a good smooth result.

When you are finished stapling, cut away excess fabric, although remember not to cut closer than half an inch away from the staples to avoid the fabric to start crawling out of their strongholds. Finish off by cutting a square to cover the ugly underside with. Measure the fabric to cover the surface where you stapled and add some cm to fold into. Staple along the folded edge, don not forget to tighten the fabric slightly. You have now completed your first trivet...

Happy Easter!

Sida 12

Sweet candy stash Are you tired of Easter eggs you’ve collected over the years? Here are some tips on how to make them look like the eggs of great-grandmother’s childhood.

Sida 13

Things you need: • Old Easter eggs • Wallpaper paste • Tissue paper color of your choice • Paint brushes about 2cm

• Twines / ribbons such as: jute twine, paper twine or cotton ribbon • Paper glue • Sweet napkins • Decorative paper

wide • White roof color (matte) • Acrylic paint to mix up with the white roof color, to get the right shade of color

• Small decorative stuff, for example, letters in wood, mini bears, princess crowns • Clear stamp, text designs • Stamp pad any color

• Lace tape in various colors

• Old cardboard

• Double-sided tape

• Paper punch for tag

• Bird feathers / easter feathers

• Hole pliers

1. FOR THE CHILDREN Dotty in pastel: Since we were looking for a matte finish

on the egg we used the white roof color. Paint one egghalf at a time. Allow to dry. Tag with a letter & teddy: Punch with any paper punch or cut a tag of matching decorative paper. Then attach the first letter of the children’s names with double sided tape and ”dirty” the edges of the tag with brown stamp color to get a bit worn look. Mix the roof color with acrylic to get the desired shade for the dots. We made one with pink respectively green dots. When the eggs are dry glue on a sweet lace band around the egg’s edge. Light pink ribbon for the pink egg, and beige ribbon for the green. Measure after the egg’s edge and put on doublesided tape around the egg, and then fasten the lace. Measure a piece of jute twine and tie around the pink egg, fasten tag & pink mini-bear and tie a bow. The same procedure with the green egg, but with yellow & white dotty cotton ribbon. Guess if your children gets thrilled when they get so cute little creations.

Sida 14

2. VINTAGE Decoupage of:

It is an advantage if you paint the egg white before you decoupage. Because if you want to decorate with a bright napkin / paper, the pattern on the egg tends to shine through if it is unpainted, and you will need many layers of decoupage. Start by tearing the tissue paper in different shapes and sizes of strips. • Beige with feathers. Take a little darker beige silk paper, brush on glue, apply a strip of paper and brush over with glue again. You do not need that much glue, it does not matter if it is not completely covered. Continue with paper and glue in layers until you are satisfied. Allow to dry. Paste some paper glue on top of the egg and attach some small dotty bird feathers, a jute twine bow and a small tag made of decorative paper. Now the egg is done! • White with elegant text. Want a little more ”life” in the egg, you can make your own decorated tissue paper, then stamp with optional Clear Stamp-stamps. You do not need to stamp carefully, it looks better if you are a little sloppy. Glue on a couple layers of unstamped white tissue paper around your egg and finish the last layer with your stamped tissue paper. Allow to dry. We felt that this egg was complete as it was, and did not add anything more.

Sida 15

3. ROMANTIC • Rosy pink White eggs with a napkin decoupage. Lap white tissue paper and glue. Add the napkin the last thing you do and brush a little on top. Allow to dry. An alternative is to put the napkin over only half of the egg and then stamp the remaining half with a nice stamp. • Printing ink Here we have used plain paper with print, in our case with oldfashioned newspaper text. And it’s the same principle as above. Brush the glue, put on paper, glue and lap until you are satisfied. Meanwhile, the egg is drying, take time to make a small tag of the old cardboard that you write or stamp your greetings and maybe stick a decoration, we chose to decorate with a necklace in form of a beautiful crown in silver, can be purchased at most hobby shops. Measure the right length of a lace ribbon, cut and paste as in ”Children Spotted pastellägg”. Cut a piece of brown paper twine, long enough for two laps around the egg. Wrap around, tie and attach your home-made tag and finish with a bow. Finally add some fine bird feathers in the bow and the egg is complete!

Cut a square of fabric to cover lid. Fold it two times and then cutting edge of a quarter circle, and when you´re done the laid-open fabric is circular. Place the fabric on the lid and secure with a rubber band and then tie around a piece of lace ribbon. Is the jar intended as a gift is a tip to wrap it in a little cellophane.
