Here's a little peasant top I made of a very fine whaled corduroy for my sweet pea...







And I just love making these Kanzashi flowers.....



She gets all sorts of compliments when she wears them.  I think I'm going to end up teaching a class about them soon since so many friends want to know how to do it.

The top and the headband are both adorable, but not as cute as your model!!! She is a doll!

Adorable baby, adorable top.  I have been looking at that fabric for a while and dying for a reason to use it.  This top is great!  I like the flower too.

That is really cute!  I wish I could come to your class about the flowers.  Those areadorable!  Would they hook well onto a alligator clip?

Love it! The fabric is great, the top is perfect, the headband just seals the deal! Your little sweet pea is super, super cute!

Where do you find time to do all this sewing??!! Now *that* is a class I'd attend! lol

Seriously, though, I'd love a headband class, too. Any chance you might be able to swing a tute out of your class? Pretty please???  Grin

Thanks everyone!

Yeah.  I think she's pretty cute, too.  Grin

Mommy the Maid...I'm sure they would.  I've seen them as hair clips and pins on jackets or purses and on combs....the possiblities are endless!

QuiltersBlock....lucky for you (because you won't have to wait!) there is already a tutorial (don't you love instand gratification?!).  Here is the one I used to learn how to do these....

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24944.0


The flowers are really easy (okay, friends are always giving me a hard time because I'm always saying "It's really easy!" and apparently some of the things I thought were easy....well, weren't.  BUT, these really are!  They might look a bit tricky when you look at the tutorial and all the steps.  But they really aren't.  I was so surprised when I sat down to try them for the first time.  I thought it was a project that would take me the better part of a day and about 15-20 minutes later....I had a flower! 

Good luck!  (And if you have more questions, let me know!)

The top is very sweet.  For the cord, does it feel a bit stiff as a material for a peasant top?
