I have all these fabric scraps and fat quarters that need to be used. I bought them to make doll clothing, but I just haven't been feeling like doing that.
I've made kanzashi flowers before, but with origami paper making it slightly different since all the folds are more sharp and of course more stable. All my previous attempts at making fabric kanzashi have gone wrong, I tried making one a few days ago, it did not go well. I tried a different approach for this one, aiming for pointed petals instead of the rounded kind. I always had problems opening the rounded petals...
I'm thinking of maybe layering them and having a giant bow behind it, but I don't know if I have enough of either fabric to make a big bow just yet. I'm also in need of a pretty ornament to place in the center. The black doily isn't part of it, it's just there to make the kanzashi stand out more. It's kind of nice though, so I guess if anything, I've got some black fabric.
Also, I've added some stuff to Etsy. Check it out~
