I finally managed to find again the tutorial for making kanzashi, on a blog called Kinomo Reincarnate, here.   These are a bit more sophisticated than the way I was shown how to do them with more stitching on the backs, but I think it pays off since they look as if they would hold their shape better. I have to admit they are also smaller and generally more neat and elegant than mine. If I make any more though this is the way I shall try.
I haven’t done much crafting lately, although I am working on a new project, but since I plan to enter it in a contest it will have to be secret for now. I’ve also been busy getting ready for Christmas, at least that’s my excuse. I plan to have a relaxing and peaceful time with family, both two and four legged, and I wish everybody else the same, or at least whatever they would wish for themselves.
