Some time ago I was inspired to try to make kanzashi flowers after buying the book 'Kanzashi in Bloom' by Diane Gilleland. I tried making a few but was not very successful in finishing them off to my satisfaction. I could make the petals but when it came to joining them all up and forming the flower, I just couldn't get that bit to work. So the book was put away.
Last week at Melbourne's Craft and Quilt Fair, I came across a kanzashi flower maker tool and I was inspired all over again.
The instructions call for the back to be finished with a glued circle of self fabric. My bottle of fabric glue refused to open, so I used a couple of layers of iron-on interfacing to finish the back.
