Kanzashi is a traditional Japanese art form of folding and stitching fabric petals for use in beautiful adornments— especially for hair. This somewhat time consuming process has recently been innovated by Clover with the Kanzashi Flower Maker: You simply set a small square of fabric in a flexible plastic plate, cut + sew— and voil, you’ve got silk petals!
This project was so simple that children and adults alike could complete the process. Add a braided silk band and some scraps of organza and these headbands are pretty enough to wear in a wedding (think bridesmaids + flower girls), to a dance, or a Sunday stroll.
