These beautiful flowers are so simple to make and a few can be made in front of the tv in an evening, they make great detail to all kinds of projects like on handbags, dolls hair or cloths , children’s clothes, adult clothes to name but a few.
To make Kanzashi flowers you will need:
Disappearing ink pen or tailors chalk
Buttons or beads
Here’s how I made the flowers
You need to make 5 circles of fabric mine are 5cm dimension
Fold the circle in half
Using a running stitch, stitch along the curved edge of all 5 petals
Pull tight to gather up the petals and stitch together
Sew on you button or bead to the centre of the flower.
and that’s it your first flower that I think looks like a blossom flower 😊🌸🌸🌸
The Folded Flower
You will need to cut out 5 squares of fabric mine measure 7cm around each side
Fold in half length ways (to make a triangle)
Holding the triangle with the top point facing you fold down each of the top points to the bottom point.
Turn the square over and fold in the left and right points to the middle then fold in half (so that the left and right folds are on the inside)
Place a pin through the fabric to keep it together whilst you make all five petals
Once all the petals are made with a needle and thread sew through the middle of each petal then trim of the access fabric join the thread with a knot making a loose flower shape
Push down the middle of the petal to make a petal shape, repeat for each petal
Sew a button or a bead to the middle of the flower.
