Kanzashi ID Badge Holdercomments (2) April 11th, 2010 in gallery
A kanzashi flower is traditionally used in Japanese hair accessories. The fabric is starched, folded, formed and then sewn together. I added glue to the petals to make them more "crush" proof and added an jewel center. The flower was then attached to my ID badge holder for work. My co-workers keep asking for them and in January I started selling them on Etsy.
Pattern or design used: you tube kanzashi
