Kanzashi Obsession

Tsumami Kanzashi: an age-old Japanese technique for folding and sewing little squares (or, in my case, scraps) of cloth to make gorgeous flowers for hair ornaments for geisha and maiko =]

Like I said, it's an absolutely wonderful way to use up little scraps of cloth that you have. I cut 1-2 inch squares and made them into petals, then sewed them together and glued fake jewels, buttons, and beads onto the centers. Tutorials are very easy to find online, so I won't be making my own. Feel free to contact me if you need any tips on making them though!
