1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you use as bases for Kanzashis? on: July 21, 2007 12:07:20 PM
I made this tutorial you guys posted at the beginning of this thread (http://bp0.blogger.com/_sIXk8oqRnCM/Rm4TdAEk4gI/AAAAAAAAAOY/tRn__FakygA/s1600-h/kanzashi+tutorial-english+50+percetn+smaller.jpg)
I use hard felt that are sold in craft stores. I use nori, rice glue, after you set the petals on the glue you have to wait for nearly 30 minutes for glue to dry a bit so that you can start constructing  the flower.
hot glue work well only with thick fabric. I never used on cotton fabric, but I know some vintage kimono fabric is thick like upholstery fabric, and hot glue works really well with them.
good luck and have fun
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / MIDDLE EAST / Re: beads fabrics in istanbul on: December 12, 2006 07:45:29 AM
I dont know istanbul very well but I got tons of beads and stuff from KADIKOY district. They say Tahtakale is cheaper, Ali Faik Pasajı, Boncuk Han, Terme Han, Marpuular İş Merkezi, Sabuncu Han are the names of 'malls' you shoudl look for. In Turkey, small shops  are usually housed in a big buildings, they are kind of like malls although not very fancy Smiley

Serasker Cad. Arayıcıbaşı Sok. No: 31/3

Bahariye Cad. Kafkas Pasajı No: 37/34
