The word “kanzashi” is used to describe hair ornaments that are worn in traditional Japanese hairstyles (while Kanzashi Tsumami is the art of folding silk fabrics into flower pins for the hair). However, a new book by Diane Gilleland, Kanzashi in Bloom covers hair pins and more! Included in the book are 20 projects for transforming fabric squares into earrings, drawer knobs, and embellishments for a variety of projects. Diane also shows you how you can take the simple flower design and transform it into something completely different…. like a butterfly!
