I have something to share!!!
I don't remember how I found these but let me tell you when I sat down last night to see if I could just fold a piece of fabric remotely close to the real deal...I was hooked! 15 petals later...I had to redo this flower OMG so many times I lost track! but!!! It is so gorgeous! My only dilemas are 1. boys and flowers don't go together, and 2. the bulkyness. I have to find some thinner fabric. Anyway, here is a picture of my little-not so little flower. This fabric was cut at 3"...I think I'm going to try 1 1/2 next. The flower is called a Kanzashi flower. I'm ordering a book on all the folds...this is one of 3 that I know of so far. Click on Kanzashi to see a video and get instructions. I hope you all can use these beautiful little creations! I do recommend using starch and a bone folder for your creasing. It made life so much easier!
