KANZASHI Flowers #1

Kanzashi is a form of fabric folding started in Japan in the early 1600's. They made hair pieces and clothes adornments out of them. I want to use them in a quilted wall hanging. There will be a set of at least 4 different flowers for you to learn how to make. Fun and easy! This is the first flower and I started it using 3" squares of cotton fabric. Spray with spray starch and iron cloth before starting the folding steps. Have fun with this new project!
