Good Evening everyone! I finally got some pics uploaded so here are a few of my latest creations. I have officially caught the kanzashi flower bug.

This one is a little ring. It's a 1 inch flower which equals tiny! The small ones are harder to make, but I think they're so cute!



This one has a pin on the back. It's a little bigger, more like 2 inches because it's made out of upholstery weight fabric which doesn't fold as easily



I don't know why the pic on this one look overexposed.. it's really a true blue color with a lighter blue and purple flower pattern. Two layers of kanzashi goodness on a pin



This baby is my favorite to wear. I know it's hard to tell from the pic but the squiggly pattern on the fabric has a slight metallic sheen to it. Plus, teal is one of my fav. colors. I pretty much wear it pinned to me somewhere every day.



Another brooch. This guy is BIG almost 3.5 inches across, I've tried a few different ways of filling the centers of these things, but I always go back to the stacked button.



I made this guy for a friend of my mom's. It's a brooch about 2 inches in diameter. Kind of a burgundy with dots pattern. The center on this guy is floral stamen which are basically little paper sticks with a blob on each end and when you bunch them together, they look like the middle of a flower.



This is a bobby pin with a different kind of floral stamen center. I think this one looks more like a real flower than some of these other ones.



Another bobby pin this time in orange. And back to the stacked button center.  Smiley



This is the first kanzashi I ever folded. It's kind of a Barney purple. I used some purple twill not expecting it to turn out, but I ended up liking it! It's kind of cartoony. Like if you put your nose up to it, it will squirt you with water.



My sister is getting married this summer, so I folded up some hair things for her to choose from. She doesn't want to wear a veil, but she wants something 'veil-ish' so I think she'll like these. They're Dupioni silk with Swarovski crystal centers.







This next guy is a double layered one, too. This was the first flower I added leaves to. It reminds me of a magnolia flower. It's on a hair comb.



This one is a yellow and orange combo. It has seven petals. I don't love the odd number of petals, though, now I pretty much stick to even numbers, It's more symmetrical that way



Another brooch from the upholstery weight material. The thicker fabric gives the petals a stronger shape.



And that's all for now! Sorry if I 'sploded your computer with my pics. I'm just really happy with how these turned out!

Thank You!!!

Tsunami Kanzashi is kind of like origami but with fabric. First, I cut out a bunch of squares from whatever material I want to use. Then I fold it into the petal shape, sew a bunch of petals together to form the flower and then stick whatever accessory I want to make onto the back. I've made earrings, brooches, hairthings, rings, hair elastics, even a lampshade!. These flowers can pretty much go on anything.

Thank you! I'd love to try that sometime with some fabric scraps I have after a sewing project!

Coming out of lurk mode to say that this is my next craft to learn. Beautiful and classy.
