SYTYC: Week Four

I made the Kanzashi for So You Think You're Crafty's Week Four: Scraps!

Kanzashi is the Japanese art of folding fabric usually for hair ornaments. These flowers are made of several 1, 2, and 3 inch squares of fabric folded into petal shaped and glued together into brooches. Because of the small size of the squares, it is a great way to use the scraps that are left over from cutting out patterns. I chose the fabric scraps and buttons from my stash. (The green squares are an example of what each petal looks like before folding. I jumped head first into this project so I missed my chance to take pictures of these)

Don't forget to vote on Week Five's Up-Cycle! We're halfway to to gold!
