First I'd like to apologize for all the pictures; I got a little camera happy. I'd also like to apologize for how dark the pictures are...it has been cloudy and rainy all day and I just couldn't wait till tomorrow to get these up here.
So, I LOVE the look of traditional Kanzashi flowers, but I decided to do a little bit of experimenting with some different fabrics and centers. Some of these I really like...some not so much.
(these will probably all be made into hair pins once i get around to buying the pins
This one is my favorite one by far. It is also the only one the sun decided to come out for.
The bead in the center of this one is far too big. But I like the fabric. It's hard to see in the picture, but it's a tye-dyed teal fabric.
The Easter Flower! This one isn't really my style, but I have over 20 yards of this ribbon (that I bought 10 years ago for .99 cents!) so I figured I should at least try to use it up.
This one I consider to be a bit of a fail. It doesnt look too terrible in the picture, but in real life the center looks all wonky.
I'm not normally big on rainbow, but these are the cutest things I have ever made. They are super tiny (smaller than a toonie for my fellow Canadians)
The picture is a little too blurry to do this one justice, but I like it. Although it might be too fancy for everyday wear.
In this one you can see the little stitches. All of these flowers (with the exception of the teal one and rainbow ones) are stitched and glued together...mainly because I tend to break things. And I didn't want these falling apart.
So I hope you liked them. I'd love to hear what you think! Also, don't be surprised if I post a few more in the next couple of days, I think i might be addicted to making these.
Thanks for looking.
