20 simple, fold-and-sew projects to wear and give!
Kanzashi is the Japanese art of folding delicate squares of silk into 3-D flower petals. This fun, new trend is catching on, and Diane Gilleland has simplified ways to create these gorgeous fabric flowers by incorporating more user-friendly materials like cotton and synthetic fabrics along with the traditional silks.
Kanzashi in Bloom takes the American interpretation of Kanzashi a step further, presenting modern, more easily executed flower designs as elements in a variety of fun, fashionable craft projects. This book offers advice on materials, three petal-folding styles and techniques for assembling a Kanzashi flower. Everything from earrings to hair clips make this a book you will use over and over again. 144 pages, all color.
